thanks, these are great tips


Thanks, Sarah! I needed the info about macro shots in the description.

And about bonus tip #2, DH told me you can use the palm of your hand as a neutral place to get a better exposure. Same idea -- halfway down with the shutter to lock in the exposure, then move the camera to the subject.


How funny .. I take my pics in the same spot in my house :). I recently tried using a tripod and taping my LO on a white door but it didn't work out so well.


I think it is a total learning experience/process. If you go back to see my first layout pictures and now there is a big difference. I've learned lots of tricks along the way. Thanks for all your tips. I use Google Picasa for Windows for editing.


I needed this so bad! Thank you!

This was great, Sarah! Thanks! I really appreciate your tips about shooting the black layout. I definitely have that problem. I know Linda mentioned taping a layout against a white door.. I always taped my layouts to an upright foam board and used my tripod to get a straight on shot. It was perfectly even that way. However, DH made me see how I can do that same thing on the floor. Just turn your tripod to face down and you're good to go.
