More often that not Mum’s are the families designated photographer and I am going to be working with Bonusprint to help you take print-worthy family photographs this summer.
Take Print-Worthy Family Photographs on your Smartphone
We are delighted to be working with Bonusprint this summer to encourage you to make the most of your photos this summer and capture images that are truly print-worthing or #proudtoprint. Did you know that according to research by Bonusprint on average we take 24 snaps a day on holiday, publishing 5 to social media, but only 25% of these are truly good enough to print out!
Half of us only use our smartphones to take our holiday snaps, but 28% of us do not understand the settings on their smartphones. Do you know what HDR means? If not keep reading!
The thing is we all want to print more photographs. 63 percent of people wished they printed more photographs of special moments, as opposed to snapping hundreds of selfies which sit on social feeds never to be seen again. Whist 68 percent said there is an enduring appeal to the printed photograph that digital images can never replace. Plus half of us admit they get more pleasure from looking at printed photographs.
Tips to capture print-worthy photographs from your smartphone
Save the originals – safeguard printable images by saving the originals before you filter
Get Close – You’ll have more control of lighting and position.
Crop, Don’t Zoom – your photos will have better quality if you crop them
Ditch the flash – smartphone flashes are often overly bright so do what you can without it
HDR is your friend – When you enable HDR (High Dynamic Range) mode, your phone will take three photographs at the same time to filter out the overly light and dark elements, and layer the best parts of each shot to create one photo all in a few seconds!
Use the rear camera of your smartphone. It takes much higher resolution shots than the front camera – often used for selfies
I have been following the tips above and to prove that they work I have sent a selection of recent photographs to Bonusprint to be printed out and will be showing you an imaginative way to display them in a coming post.
Bonusprint have also created a summer snappers guide with tips on how to make sure you take images which you are #ProudtoPrint.
I also want to see your print-worthy photographs, so share them with us using hashtag #proudtoprint on Bonusprints’s Facebook page or Twitter and The Mad House twitter, facebook or Instagram . Plus make sure you keep an eye here as I have a fantastic competition coming in conjunction with Bonusprint.
