Child Taking Pictures

Drawing on some of their inspiration, StorePhotos.com has assembled a list of five ways to take better pictures. Enjoy!

Change Your Point of View
Move the camera around. Shoot from the hip, above your head, or even down around your feet to get a unique look at your subject. Don’t be afraid to look a little funny! Sometimes some of the best shots are taking in the oddest positions.

Just Shoot
Don’t worry about composition or framing when you’re just starting out with photography. Close your eyes and point the camera, and you might be surprised at how beautiful your photos are. Just be sure that they’re in focus!

Software is Key
Investing in some great photo editing software can be an excellent way to improve the look of your photos to make them print ready.

Be Creative
Like that bird? Take a picture. Like your shoes? Take a picture. Like that stop sign? Take a picture. Take a look around you and take pictures of things that bring you joy. Experience beauty behind the lens and snap shots of things that look cool at the moment or that you’d like to remember. This can be great practice for new photographers trying to learn their camera.

Store Smart
When storing your works of art, be sure to choose a durable, archival quality Photo Album or scrapbook to capture those memories forever. MemoryScrapbooks.com has a great selection of both, ready to fill with your favorite photos.

Spring Cleaning Season is Almost Here: Are Your Photos in Order?

Spring cleaning can be both celebrated and dreaded in households around the nation. However, when it comes to organizing your photos, keeping those memories in order can prove to be both an enlightening and rewarding experience. When your photographs are organized, it’s easier to keep track of your favorite memories in a way that preserves them for years to come.

Choosing to store your photos in archival quality photo albums can be just one way that you can get your favorite events with family and friends in order. Not to mention, organizing your digital photo CDs can also be effective in streamlining the way to archive the passage of time with your family and friends in mind.

As you look through old photographs during organization, you can be inspired to do something fun with a family member, call up on old friend, or even dare to do something you’ve never done before.
Treasured memories can often inspire, so let your spring cleaning season get a bit more inspirational. Go through your favorite photos and store them in Archival Quality Photo Albums or Digital Photo CD Albums to keep them safe for future years (and even generations!).
