We were so excited to have award winning photographer, Nick Kelsh on one of our team calls recently. Here are some of the things we learned from him.
Some quick TIPS Nick shared are:
- keep your camera parallel with the thing you are copying
- be sure the lens is over the center of the picture
- lighting is important. Be sure there isn't anything above your phone that will reflect whiteness into the picture.

We had award winning photographer, Nick Kelsh, on our training call earlier this week, and he shared a number of tips with us about ways to take better photos with our cameras, and also with our smart phone cameras.
I found this particular tip to be fun, particularly resourceful, and quite "smart" actually. Looking at the quality of the photo on the camera, we can see how useful our smart devices can be when it comes to preserving and duplicating our precious photos. It's time to take out my Iphone and scan in some photos!
