Tips On Taking A Good Family Picture

Over the holiday season, you’ll probably want to snag a family picture with the whole gang while you’re all together. Short of hiring a professional photographer, there are things you can do to get ready for a great family portrait. 

Get A Tripod

This is the first step towards a good photograph, as tripods remove any shaking (and thus blurry images) your hands may cause. Have one or two family members stand in frame and place your camera-mounted tripod in a good spot. You can even get tripods for your phone, so no matter what kind of camera you’re using, you’ll get a better quality photograph. 

Turn On The Timer

Just about every camera is equipped with an auto-timer. This feature will allow you to set the picture up with everyone in the frame and then join the picture, so no one is left out! You should have an idea of how long the timer is set for, so everyone can be prepared to say “cheese!”

Turn Off The Flash

While it may seem like a good idea to turn the flash on for a family photo, the picture will usually come out much better without it. Try to pick a room for your picture that has a lot of natural light. If you’re taking the picture in the darker part of the day, or in a room without windows (natural light is best!), make sure you turn on enough lights in the room.

Find The Perfect Background

It’s always nice to have a background that you’ll remember in a picture. Whether you gather your family around the tree or find a snowy scene in front of the house, choose where you take the picture wisely! You don’t want a bunch of wrapping paper strewn in the background of your photo.

Print And Frame

Last, but not least, you’ll want to print and frame your family photo. You may even want several copies to give out to family members as a gift at a later date. You can have your photos printed at a variety of retails stores, or print your own.

Why Photo Art Makes The Perfect Gift

We’re just a couple of weeks away from Christmas. Buying gifts can be fun, but it can also get stressful at times. There’s always someone on your list who seem to have everything. There’s a great option that you have to give to those who are hard to buy for on your list:  art!

Art Is Suitable For Everyone

People always need something new to hang on their walls. It’s never wrong to give someone the gift of spicing up their home with new scenery. 

They Probably Don’t Have Anything Like It

When you purchase a piece of digital art as a gift, there’s a really good chance that the recipient has nothing else like it. Each piece of digital art is unique. Even moving a picture from one wall to another can give a room a different look. Art is the gift that keeps on giving.  

Art Is Portable

You can have art delivered right to your door. It’s easy to take smaller pieces of art on an airplane right in your suitcase as well.

Art Is Affordable And Unchanging

Unlike many popular electronics, art doesn’t require an upgrade. It’s worth the investment because the amount you pay for a piece of canvas art or digital art print is backed by lasting quality.
