The Three Point Triangle Flexible Template for Lots of Photos – Paperclipping 255

Monday, December 29th, 2014

paperclipping

Do you have lots of photos from recent holiday events?

I do!

I took the Flexible Template from Paperclipping 181 — a design idea you can use to build single photo layouts, as well as pages with lots of photos — and I used it for two different Christmas pages.

  1. A two-page spread with 12 photos all the same size.
  2. A two-page spread with 11 photos of varying sizes.

Of course, I did it all on video so you can do it, too.

Whether you have lots of pictures that are ready to scrapbook, or just a few, you’ll be able to use the Flexible Template to get you going on your next page.

If you’re a Paperclipping Member you can watch the video now.

Make Your Thanksgiving Stories More Interesting – Paperclipping 254

Sunday, November 30th, 2014

thanksgiving_pages 2

I don’t want (or need) a scrapbook page to document every Thanksgiving. Do you?

How many Thanksgiving pages do I think we should have?

Enough to tell our Thanksgiving stories.

Right now I have seven, and with just two more that I hope to capture next year, I’ll have all the pages I think I need to have documented all the good stories about my Thanksgivings as a married person of 17 years — at least for now, until new stories develop.

I don’t think we need a scrapbook page for each year. Instead, I focus on the stories and the traditions.

That means most of my pages aren’t specific to any year. They tell stories that usually cover a handful of years, which I think is much more interesting and telling.

To see what I’m talking about, and to hopefully get inspired to recognize and document your own unique stories of Thanksgiving, I made a video — of course. :)

Holiday Photography Day 3: Food

Paperclipping Holiday Photography Tips

This is a post from my 7-Day Holiday Photography Tips, which I sometimes gift to Paperclipping Members around the holidays. I wrote this with December holidays in mind, but I decided to share the food tips post for free before Thanksgiving starts!

Note: I’m not an expert photographer. But I’ve had some relative success with many of my photos and want to share what I know at a time when we most want stunning pictures.

Good food photos require basic photography skills: good composition, good (especially natural) lighting, great angles, etc. Food can be tricky, but hopefully you’ve been practicing the two previous lessons and you’ll be ready to apply what you’ve learned in a new way!

Holiday food shots can vary between close-up’s of Christmas goodies, to a plate of food on a table, to the entire banquet. The type you’re taking will determine your photo settings. Let’s talk about different types of food shots and some of the approaches you can take so you can get photos that capture the magic of holiday food. Click to read more…
