Another photo tip!

Hey there! Its Laura here with another easy photo tip! This week's tip is adding interest to you photos. I know you've seen those photos where its clear that they are just so good, but you can't quite put your finger on it. Photos that have you looking closely at them or checking them out more then once have some sort of interest peeking element involved. Here are a few ways to add interest to your photos.

1. Natural framing.

Our eyes like natural framing. It can be a row of trees, swings, the circle in playground equipment. Something that when you look at the picture, you notice a natural frame around the point of interest. Here is one example of my son Rett.

This photo would have been better if I had gotten closer to omit the green pole on the side. Oh and if he was actually looking at me. But the purple thing in the background is still something that can be used for framing.

And another natural framing one.

2. Put something between you and the point of interest.

Having something in the front of your photo before your point of interest always makes the photo look a little bit better. Here are a few examples of that:

This one was taken by my friend Jessica. She did a fabulous job doing this!

I hope these two little tips can help you add some interest to your children's photos!
