I’m sure you have a little artist in the family who is making masterpieces from cotton balls, empty toilet paper rolls, paper plates, and penne pasta. We do over here! They are the cutest, but just can’t save them all. So I decided to make a book before the new school year begins. It will be a great way to document every year how their talents have grown. It is also an easy way to share with others without having to fumble a huge stack of greatness. The first step is to gather all the of finger painted, googly-eyed art, coloring pages and worksheets that you want to include and photograph them. Below are some tips that might help…
> take photos in a bright room with lots of natural light
> lay the artwork on a piece of white poster paper for consistency
> try turning off your flash
> a tripod can help keep your camera steady
Next step will be making the book…stay tuned for part two!
