Hi all! As promised, I'm going to start sharing some tips and tricks for taking better snapshots here on my blog!

On a daily basis, we don't have time to stage our photos. This means we get a lot of busy photos where the subject is lost (especially with phone photos where everything from foreground to background is often in focus). An easy remedy for this is to shoot from above. Climb (safely!) on a bed, chair or other piece of furniture, or just stand over your subject, and shoot straight down. If you can't see what you're getting because you have to hold the camera or phone up too high, take many shots. Very likely one will come out great - just like this iPhone shot of my nephew playing with his trucks and packing peanuts!

Don't you just love the striped socks and carpet?! Happy shooting!
