Day 3 project: Photography tips

Today I want to share some ideas for great holiday photos. These are photos of last year's Hanukkah, but you can use the tips for any holiday photos you want.

1. Take the photo from up close – to get all the details, like the, melting wax I took the photo of the Menorah from a really small distance. I put my camera on micro (the small flower) and took the photo with no flash.

2. Take a photo of clusters – to really convey the holiday spirit in my photo I took a photo of all the doughnuts on the plate. I did the same with the spinning tops that my kids were playing with.

Day 5 mission: (if you choose to accept it) is to share your favorite holiday food. Post it on your blog, on FB, on message boards, anywhere on line you want with a link to the Blog Party. Then go back to my blog and write a comment with a link to your post.

Day 5 giveaway: Photo mats by LYB. Great addition to your layouts or mini albums.

Have fun creating!
