(Inside: How to capture extraordinary pictures of your ordinary moments. Four simple tricks to elevate your photography.)
One of my favorite things to do is take pictures of ordinary moments in motherhood. Because that’s when life happens – all the beautify, all the wonder, it’s right in the everyday.
I’m sharing four simple tricks to capture extraordinary pictures of your ordinary moments.
1. Take Silhouette Pictures – Capture Extraordinary Pictures of your Ordinary Moments
2. Zoom in on one object in the shot. (And not necessarily the object you would think to highlight.)
3. Set your camera down and snap the picture.
4. Capture motion. They’re never still anyway, so embrace the movement.
And lastly, lower your expectations. I gave up on trying to control every aspect of the shot. If I just try and be creative with photographing what’s in front of me, I usually end up with at least one shot I like. And if not, I can try again another time.
