I hope this will spark a call to action within you as well. Get out and explore your city, take your camera with you, get those photos off your phone, and create memory keeping books of the experience.
Let's kick this off with a photo of my sweet friends Nancy Wyatt and Angee Carter. We all got together this week for a night of photography, food, and fun. I will be posting more about these talented ladies in future blog posts. Stay tuned!
We got a chance to visit a local cafe called Tout Suite right here in Houston. The decor, the coffee, and the food were all fabulous.
Of course I snapped a couple of photos to document the evening. I did have my Nikon D3300 with me, but you don't need a big camera to capture memories. My handy dandy Iphone 6S was just what I needed for quick and easy table shots.
We sat near a window to capture the natural light. This is key when you want to get a clear photo. I'm still learning about photography, but I do like to shoot at different angles to capture the colors, shapes, and natural essence of whatever I'm shooting.
I also wanted to be sure to get a shot of the front counter. Go ahead and don't be shy about capturing a worker bee or two. They usually give me smile and are kind enough to oblige me and my endless snapping of the camera. It's good to capture people when they are not posing. It gives a more natural feel to the photo don't you think?
I used the photos to make a page using the Project Life App. It took less than 10 minutes to make. I used the Everyday Edition collection. I find it is best to find cards that color coordinate with my photos. It gives the page a crisp and clean look. You can find out more about Project Life by checking out my past posts HERE or visiting the official site HERE.
I hope you enjoyed the first of my "Take Your Camera With You" series. Stay tuned for more fun photography tips!
