Learn to Take better Fall Pictures

Posted by Mary Full on November 4, 2013 at 11:45 AM Comments comments ()

 Before coming to our Virginia Beach Fall scrapbook retreat for 2013 here are some great photo tips to capture your fall photos better. Another tip before attending the scrapbook weekend retreat at Virginia Beach is to prit them right away so you don't take a chance in losing them or your computer crashes like mine and you lose your photos...So before you join us at Virginia Beach in the Fall and have fun scrapbooking those fall memories at our weekend retreat...

What can be better than scrapbooking those memories with your Fall Photos at the Va Beach Oceanfront for the Fall retreat. 11/22-11/23/13. $105 for all 3 days non stop Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Scrapbook Weekend Retreat.

Great photo tips for fall!


Fall is the season for memories! Here are tips to help you capture your fall memories in photos:




In the fall, the leaves change to bright, vibrant colors and the grass is still green, making a beautiful backdrop for family photos. Take your family holiday photo early!




Make sure you snap a few photos of the lovely scenery, trees in your yard, and other fall landscapes, too. Those gorgeous fall colors will be gone before you know it!




After you’re done raking the yard, take pictures of your kids playing in the leaves.




Carving pumpkins for Halloween? Don’t forget to take photos during the process and the finished products!




If you take trips to the apple orchard or pumpkin patch, take photos of your kids displaying their picks.- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Many people bake during the fall. Get your kids in on the fun and document your fun afternoon spent together. Or, if you have a special recipe (like Grandma’s special apple pie), make a copy of the recipe card and create a scrapbook page about it!- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

If you always visit the same apple orchard or pumpkin patch, take a photo of your kids in the same spot every year. It will be so fun to see how much they’ve grown each year!
