I’m disciplining myself into uploading my images to Snapfish, the moment I need to empty my memory card. It’s hardly laborious but it’s a failsafe for me as I like the idea of my images stored on both my own computer and on Snapfish’s generous servers. Imagine having just one set of images on your hard drive only for the gremlins in your computer to lose them at any given moment?! Well, that’s not a risk that I have been willing to take after suffering a computer crash and External Hard Drive meltdown in the space of 18 months. My prize photographs and subsequent memories were all gone in a snap; it was truly devastating.
Now that the days are getting longer and oh-so-slightly warmer, how about getting outside with your camera? There are plenty of opportunities in spring to capture bright and fresh images, so dust off your lens and get snapping!
Find a great setting
As nature starts to wake up after the harsh winter weather, there are some spectacular sights to see. Go for a woodland stroll in search of a thick carpet of bluebells – the perfect photo opportunity.
Get up close
Once you’ve got some stunning spring landscape shots, try moving in closer to get more detailed shots. Experiment with the ‘macro’ setting on your camera to take amazing close-up pictures of delicate and colourful flowers, buds and leaves. These will look great displayed around your home.
