Photography Tip


The best way to photograph flat artwork is to use natural light. If possible, bring the piece outside and find an open but slightly shady area. The shade helps protects the artwork from sun damage or curling. Read more…

Create a New Year’s Resolution Vision Board for 2019

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADid you know that one of the biggest recent break-out pop stars, Meghan Trainor, created a vision board to map out her success? Before she made it to the top of the charts, she used a vision board to remind her of what she wanted to achieve, including a record deal, and a photo of the Grammy’s. Trainor then went on to achieve those things and more—and you could do the same in the coming New Year.


Now’s the perfect time to create a New Year’s resolution vision board that will help you paint the picture you want to see for your life in 2019.

#TBT Christmas Edition: 3 Creative Ways to Celebrate

Blank christmas photo framesAn opportunity like this only comes around once every seven years: Christmas will be falling on a Thursday this year!


For those who may not know, #TBT stands for “Throwback Thursday” where Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and other social media sites, honor this trending hashtag by posting old/throwback photos.


Since Christmas is on a Tuesday this year, our big question is: how do you plan to celebrate the holiday and this catchy social media trend?


Consider trying one of these creative ideas to make this upcoming #TBT the most wonderful day of the year.



12 days of #TBT

 

Friday, December 14th will be the first of the twelve days of Christmas. Instead of getting your loved ones a partridge in a pear tree, start by posting an old Christmas photo with #TBT and #12DaysOfChristmas. You can even caption your scanned photos with: “Christmas is on throwback Thursday this year, but I’m starting early! I’ll post one old Christmas photo here every day until the 25th. Stay tuned!”

 

Then/now themed holiday cards

 

For a “Then/Now” themed Christmas card, combine a “back-in-day” holiday photo with a recent photo of you and your family. Underneath the photo on the card include #TBT and tell loved ones to watch their social media pages on the 25th. Then, on Christmas Day, fill your newsfeed with a mixture of old Christmas photos combined with the new 2018 ones.

 

Play a game of #TBT tag with relatives

 

Every Thursday from Thanksgiving until Christmas, you can play a game with your relatives on Facebook. Tell them since the 25th falls on #TBT this year, you’ll upload an old photo of a family member every Thursday until Christmas. The first family member to correctly tag or identify the person in the photo will get an extra present from you on the big day. This is a great way to get everyone in the family talking and connecting before the holiday.

 

The #TBT trend is a fun way to celebrate old memories and get everyone reminiscing on your social networks, but there’s an even better way to honor this upcoming Christmas #TBT with your friends and family. If you haven’t done so already, use the ScanMyPhotos bulk scanning option to get your old photos scanned and uploaded to DVD before the holiday. You can then show your loved ones all the good memories you’ve had throughout the years by looping the images on a computer or TV during the holiday.
