One of the things we found most useful was her before and after examples. So I've been going around my house taking pictures and editing them with her suggestions in mind. I have a Mac and have only used iPhoto editing previously. But being a loyal follower of Camille's has introduced us to other sites like PicMonkey that we are looking forward to trying.
- take corners of a room and vignettes, rather than the whole space
- hold your camera at 90 degrees to the subject and don't shoot from higher than the subject
- use natural light during the optimum time of day,and do not turn on the interior lights
- do not use a flash
- display the largest pictures you can
And then, as if to put us to shame, my son Michael was just playing around today and took this beautiful shot. Makes us realize we still need some work. And that 90 degree angle thing is KEY!
Thanks Camille, and it sure does take a lot of practice and a ton of pictures to get a good shot! Off to try some more...
