How to Capture and Organize Stunning Images
“Actually, it’s nature itself that creates the most beautiful pictures; I’m only choosing the perspective.” – Katja Michael
While I like to help our clients organize their photos, when it comes to photography, I’m not an expert! So I decided to call upon the experts in my family and on my team. Here’s what we came up with for tips on taking nature photos.
Over the years, I have collected many hours of film or video to preserve family memories like summer vacations, birthdays, and other special events in the form of home movies. If you have years of reels, videotapes, or DVDs, stored in boxes, learn how to convert old home movies to digital formats to preserve your history.
Your collection may include:
- Film reels: old film from 3” to 8” with anywhere from 50’ to 600’ of footage. The cost to convert it is well worth being able to view it anytime
- Tapes: 1 to 2-hour recordings including single or multiple events corrected several hours to many years
Your iPhone is always handy to take pictures of people you love enjoying time together! Summer is in full swing, and there are plenty of things to do from enjoying family picnics and swimming to backyard camping and fireworks!
But, how do you keep track of all those new images added to your photo gallery? If you have an iPhone, it’s as simple as creating separate albums. This makes them easy to find and view quickly.
A new year is a great time for fresh starts and getting organized.
If you’re facing a full Saturday of organization tasks, armed with new plastic bins, file folders, and labels, consider keeping your smartphone camera handy as well.
We all know photos help us tell stories and preserve memories, but we don’t usually consider adding photos into our toolbox of organizational equipment.
