BUFFALO GROVE, Ill., Oct. 26, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Stationery Studio, LLC (www.thestationerystudio.com), the industry's leader in premier online personalized stationery, is sharing their "Insiders Tips" for taking outdoor photos for holiday cards and gifts. Capture the beauty of Fall as your backdrop and create the perfect picture in time for the Holidays.
TIP #1: TIME OF DAY. The best time to take your pictures outside is mid-morning or the afternoon. Why? The sun at noon casts shadows that aren't flattering.
TIP #2: THE SUN. Make sure when you take your pictures, the sun is behind the photographer, shining on the subject being photographed.
TIP #3: ACTION! When taking pictures of kids, the best shots are when they are "doing" something. Whether they're walking, jumping or just being silly.
TIP #4: EDIT! When you're done snapping your pictures and download them, take advantage of the editing features like black and white, sepia and saturation. You can really alter the look of a picture and give it an artistic feel.
TIP #5: THEME. Whether you're taking a picture of a couple, a family or just the kids, try and go with a theme. And no, it doesn't mean you all have to be wearing white shirts. Try making sure there is a color theme that helps tie the picture together.
TIP #6: SHOOT, SHOOT & THEN SHOOT SOME MORE. With digital cameras there is no cost involved in taking extra pictures. Never assume you will get the perfect picture on the first click. Professional photographers assume only 1 in 20 pictures they take will actually be good.
