How can we be sure to take the perfect phto for our holiday card?
Photo holiday cards are always a popular option, but it takes more work than you think to create that flawless family photo. Since this card will be going to everyone you know, there is a lot of pressure to create the perfect image. Follow these easy tips and your photo will look effortless:
- Come up with a concept for your photo. There is no rule saying you need to snap the same old shot in from of the Christmas tree. Think outside the box and your photo will really stand-out.
- Decide on a location and try out a couple poses to see what looks best in the space you have chosen.
- Choose coordinating apparel. Everyone does not need to match exactly, but there should be a common thread that pulls everyone in the photo together. Whether it is a color scheme or repeating print, everyone should look like they belong in the photo together.
- Take lots of photos. Someone is bound to blink or move right when the camera goes off, so take as many pictures as you can. The more options you have to choose from, the better the odds you will find the perfect image.
