Organizing Your Photos

2020 is here.  All your resolutions are made and new goals set.  In saying that I just read an article that I wish I had written.  This person does an excellent job in helping you get your photos organized if that is one of your goals.

Here are the last lines of the article and they ring so true.

Don’t let your wonderful photos just sit on your computer. Instead, print and preserve your favorites. You’ll enjoy these shots more when you can view them any time versus having them hidden away on your computer.

That is where I can help you put your special photos in a beautiful photo book for yourself or a loved one.  Check out my website for all the details.

Last Christmas Gift

That’s a wrap as they say.  The last Christmas photo book is done and it looks great!

KODAK Digital Still Camera

Actually I would like to tell you a little about it.  It started with a call from a lady wanting to get a photo book for her brother.  She had about 400 photos from the 1950’s to 2019, and as many of our treasured family photos they were printed instead of digital.  That’s where I came in; not to worry I have a scanner and could scan them.  What a relief for her, all she had to do is send me her stash.  Once I had them on my computer the process moved to enhancing the photos.  When we discussed the enhancing I told her it’s not possible to made bad photos great but enhancing them can certainly make them look a whole lot better (and it did).

Some of the later photos were very good but with a little tweaking not twittering they went from good to pretty great.   Tweaking 400 photos took several hours which does cost more, however it was certainly worth it. Once all that was done then the book was ready to make and here’s how it started; with grandparents, then parents wedding pictures, next came the photos of his younger years, his wedding and all his kids using the best 325 photos.  This book was 52 pages so to be honest it was not the basic price but WOW what a great gift she is giving her brother.  You can’t put a price on family.  I hope he loves it as much as she did.  And that’s the story of the last Christmas photo book of 2019!  Call, text, email me or go to my website to order your own photo book.

Frazzled By the Holiday!

DSC01614.JPGpIf you feel stressed out due to the holidays try to do less.  You know it really is OK to say no to some of the activities as all are not equal.  If you are having trouble deciding, make a list and see which ones are important to your family especially the children.  If there are not to many in your family you could each pick one event and all attend.  Parents be sure to set aside one event you will really enjoy and do this one together without the children.  Don’t forget to keep the real meaning of Christmas in all your activities!

Have a wonderful Christmas season!  You are the reason for the season!

Photo Books make a great gift.  It is to late to order for a Christmas gift, but check out all the other special occasions there are to give this wonderful gift!

It’s all about your camera settings.  I hope this will help you with any of your quick light photos.
