Holly Springs, NC (PressExposure) September 17, 2007 -- A new site on the World Wide Web offers new mothers tips on taking digital photos of their children and family. The tips for taking photos for photo birth announcement can be found at http://www.doodlebugdezigns.com , the site provides several important tips that can help new mothers announce the birth or adoption of their new family member in style.
The site, described as âcute and trendyâ by Christina Abbunssar a new mother of two and marketing director of the Ingenuity Group, provides photography tips as well as photo birth announcements, photo holiday cards, and custom stationery. The photography tips have helped me capture photos of my children like never before.
It is a very well done and comprehensive site, said Tracy Turco a retail marketing consultant. The site is designed to offer a wide variety of photo birth announcements and photo holiday cards but the photography tips turned out to be very valuable.
Amy explains that the first thing that new parents do is to try and snap every possible moment with their new born. âFor most birth announcements these photos are hard to use because the angles and lighting involved, I can touch just about anything except photos taken from strange anglesâ Amy said. Amy went on to talk about her top three tips which are:
â¢ Prepare the area, avoid using flash when possible. Choose a natural location and cover with a light colored blanket. Dress your family in light colored clothing. Avoid stripes and lout designs the detail will take away from the picture. Remember keep it simple!
â¢ If using a digital camera, use the highest quality setting possible. Most companies selling photo holiday cards partner with photographers so they are used to getting large files. When saving your photos to a computer use either JPEG or TIF option. Ideally you want to use a 300dpi or better resolution and an image size of 800 X 1200 pixels.
â¢ Announcing that new addition this holiday season or interested in incorporating photos of older children? Then get some great photos of those little guys. Close-ups are a great way to capture personality. Kneel down and get on your childâs level, take pictures from a variety of angles. One of the coolest things to do is to include pictures of feet and hands on your photo holiday card.
