As you read this, I am on the way to TX!!!
So, just a quick tip for you this week.
Try a different viewpoint.
At my daughter's birthday party, all the girls were signing a ceiling tile that would be put up in the store after the party. Here's the typical shot.
And here's what I got from a different viewpoint.
I simply held the camera up over my head and took a couple shots until I could see mostly everyone's face. To me, this image is a bit unexpected and therefore a lot more fun.
Have a great weekend everyone!
