Make a Picture

In November, after seeing Traci Reed post about her Creative Live classes, I started poking around the Creative Live website. I hadn’t seen it before and I was instantly excited about all the possibilities. With the weather getting colder and the days shorter, I figured it was the perfect time to take a class. Not only would I get to learn something new, but I would finally have something to end the boredom of running on a treadmill. Each morning I would turn on the laptop, start watching, and start running. It was great.

The class I took was called Family Photography: Modern Storytelling. It was excellent for many reasons. One of the things that stuck out from the very beginning was that the teacher, Kirsten Lewis, used a phrase I hadn’t heard before. She kept saying, “make a picture” where we would normally say “take a picture.” She didn’t talk about the phrase, but her regular use of it made it clear that she thought it was important. (And from what I can tell, the phrase is probably taken from a quote by Ansel Adams, “You don’t take a photograph. You make it.”)

Her meaning was clear. Photography isn’t only about taking something that is already there and capturing it with the click of a button. While it isn’t less than that, there is so much more than can intentionally be done to capture moments.

I have thought a lot about that phrase and there are a few things I believe that set “taking a picture” and “making a picture” apart. Perhaps they are the same things that set apart a good photographer from the everyday person with a camera.

INTENTION: While I am all for spontaneous moments and working with what you have, there is definitely room for being intentional with your photography. Even if you stumble upon a moment you want to capture (rather than planning the moment), you can still make quick decisions that will affect the outcome of your photo. Angle, camera settings, lens choice, framing and cropping, editing. All of these things change the final product.

In these photos, my daughter was standing in the kitchen, doing what she does best: begging to lick the beaters. The way my kitchen is set up, all of sunlight comes in from one half of the room. When she first started in on her beater, she was facing into the kitchen and there was no light on her face. I simply put my back to the windows and called her name. She turned around, the light hit her beautifully, and I clicked.

STORYTELLING: When you are photographing something, you have many decisions to make in the moment. Like mentioned above, all of those decisions will change the outcome. One thing that is clear in “making a picture” is that you have a chance to tell a story. So, you have to ask yourself, “What is the story I am trying to tell?” When you think in those terms, it affects what you shoot and how you shoot it.

Take this photo, for example. I was photographing a family of eight a few weeks ago. It was warm for a December day and they were thrilled to get some fall-ish pictures when it was clearly not fall anymore. While the mom was talking to one of the younger kids, the oldest daughter was standing on a log. I looked down and noticed her fun toenail polish. In that moment, I knew I wanted to record it. It’s such a “slice of life” photo for a young teenage girl.

EDITING

People have different ideas about editing and what it should be and what it should not be. For me, editing is a powerful tool. It’s not just a tool to fix mistakes (though it can be used in that way), but it is more to help me recreate the feeling in my heart. What I am photographing, I feel something. It is usually deep within me. I “see” something, not just with my eyes but also with my heart. When I edit, I strive to recreate that feeling. It might not always recreate the exact physical reality, but it recreates the emotional reality.

I love this picture of my oldest daughter. We had a chance to shoot with just her, and I love that we captured this moment in time. My almost-twelve-year-old is looking so beautiful and mature. I was intentional with this photo, choosing the time, location, angle, and more. But editing allowed me to recreate exactly what I saw with my heart. Here is the original photo, complete with an ugly orange cone. Editing allowed me to make a picture rather than just take one.


So what do you think? Do you see difference between taking a photo and making a photo?

A Family Photo Book Project for 2015

A Family Photo Book Project for 2015

I’ve been doing annual digital pocket albums for a few years now. Now that 2015 is here, I’m excited to start my new album! As always, some things about my project worked well and I’ll keep doing them. Other details will change to give a fresh take on the project.

Here’s what is staying the same for 2015:

Using 3×4 and 4×6 spots: There are so many amazing products sized for 3×4 and 4×6 spots that I knew I had to keep using spots in these sizes.

Keeping the same journaling font all year: In past years I’ve used a typewriter font and loved how a consistent font tied the whole set of pages together, even though I used different products and colour schemes on each 2 page spread. This year I’m choosing the classic, clean and simple Century Gothic as the journaling font for my album.

Here is what is changing:

Album Printing: I’m going to print my entire album as a 10×10 photobook rather than as individual pages. It will take up less space and I can just print out three copies at once (one for me and one for each of my kids). It will feel more like a “yearbook” and will take up less real estate on my bookshelf. With the move to photo book printing, I also added a thick white border around my pages to ensure perfect printing at the end of the year.

No more shadows: I’m going to use a totally flat photobook style this year.

A lot more white: I really want my photos to take centre stage. So, I’m using a plain white background and making liberal use of white in journaling card spots.

Free Flowing: In past years, I’ve gone week-by-week. This year, I’m aiming for roughly that, by I’m not incorporating weekly numbering in case I want to have a few pictures from one week spill over onto the next set of pages.


The first four pages of my 2015 album look like this:

Here are the left and right sides close up:

Supplies: Pocket Scraps Templates 1 by Misty Cato, Cindy’s Layered Cards: January Edition by Cindy Schneider, Document It – Papers #3 by Studio Basic

Supplies: Pocket Life ’15: January Collection by Traci Reed


My goal is to have a photo book at the end of the year that showcases my photos and lets me tell little details about our family life in 2015.

Are you doing a year-long project in 2015? Tell us about it in the comments!

Scheduling Joy: Planning your Scrapbooking

How much will you scrap this year? Carrie Arrick of the Digi Scrap Geek podcast had a thought provoking (and cool!) post where she analyzes the pages she made 2014. Carrie’s post inspired me, but I set off in a different direction. Rather than reviewing 2014, I began to plan out my scrapbooking for this year, 2015.

Now before you stop reading, I have to say something about planning.

You don’t need to plan to scrapbook. In fact, too much planning, like too much organizing and shopping can prevent you from even getting started and gaining momentum. I plan my scrapping because I want to, and for me it’s a way to make sure I put aside the time to scrap.
You don’t need to do any planning, unless you want to because it helps you make scrapping happen.

I’m happiest when I scrap and print my pages regularly. So this year, as I do most years, I am planning time to scrapbook and to print my layouts. Today I’ll share my plans for scrapping.

There’s a couple of aspects to my planning: 1. A time to scrapbook 2. Projects to scrapbook.

A time to scrapbook

As a wife, mum of three, homeschooler and business owner scrapbooking time doesn’t grow on trees. Inspiration strikes much more often then I can actually sit down to scrap! But instead of letting that worry me, I’ve chosen a couple of times a week to allocate to scrapbooking. I typically spend an hour on each layout so I use that as my basic scrapping time.

Like many scrappers I enjoy scrapbooking on Sunday and even started posting my layouts with #ScrappingSunday on Instagram and Facebook. I’d love you to join in and share your pages too!

I also set aside an hour on Wednesday to do some scrapbooking.

Throughout the year, I like to take part in Layout a Day, so I’ll add an hour of scrapbooking time each day for February and October.

Then there’s a monthly craft group I attend, where I scrapbook my memorabilia in pocket pages.

Each year I itch to try traditional project life weekly spreads, and have completed a few here and there. But if I was to commit to doing weekly Project Life style pocket scrapping, that’s all I would be able to fit in to a normal week. So that begs the question… what do I want to scrapbook?

Projects to Scrapbook

As scrapbookers, our work is never ‘finished’. There’s always one more story, day, event, moment or photo to document. I tend to scrap random pages rather than going in chronological order or even doing specific projects. You may feel motivated by ongoing projects or themed albums, so your list of projects to work on may look different than mine. I have just one ongoing project on my plate for 2015, my little Lucy’s baby book.

Baby Albums

20140918 3 months_3600

I have three small children, so since 2009, I’ve been working on baby scrapbook albums!

Each month for Lucy’s first year, I have been creating a page for her, as she’s 6 months now, I’ve got 7 more to do, then the cover and some collage pages to showcase more cute baby photos!

I’ll also do a page when she begins walking and for her first birthday party.

So let’s say about 10 pages for Lucy.

Recurring Pages

I said I don’t have ongoing projects, but I do like to record certain things throughout the year that my family and I enjoy looking at. With the exception of my Christmas album, they aren’t big projects, and some of them I even create on my phone with the Project Life App.

Each year I try to create:

All up this will total about 60 pages. So that means even if I have no more ideas for pages, I’ll need to scrap more than one page per week to create them all.

Layouts for fun!

2015 Emily and Edward_3600I don’t want to over-plan my layouts, so there’s leeway to scrap whatever I like. The other 40 or so layouts I create will be prompted by activities, moments or challenges that I participate in. My schedule is to allow time for the joy of creating!

What I don’t do

What I don’t do when the time comes to scrapbook is almost as important as what I do. To give you an idea, here’s what I don’t do when it’s time to scrap:

What I Do

  • Look a my list of page ideas (I write them down when inspiration strikes)
  • Open Photoshop Elements Organizer
  • Pull some photos out and edit them with Radlab if needed
  • Open my supplies catalog
  • Browse recent kit previews
  • Choose one
  • Scrapbook
  • Run a save action to save my pages for print and web
  • Upload them to the Daily Digi’s Digital Scrapbooking Flickr Group to share the inspiration!

Ready to Go?

So what do you think about planning your scrapping?

Do you use a routine?

Do you plan what pages you create?

Do you prefer ongoing challenges?
I’d love to hear how you will plan to make time for the joy of creating.

Name

My name is Grace. I’m from the bustling city of Hong Kong. My husband, who’s Korean, and I met in Hawaii where we both went to college. We’re now residing in Utah where he’s continuing his education. I stay at home with our little young ones; my boy is a mischievous 3-year-old, and my girl a sassy 20-month-old.

layout

I was a participant at a scrapping contest last October, and the challenge was to use typography creatively in our layouts. I immediately knew I wanted to do a typography portrait, and that’s how I did the background. I also really like the pops of bright colors on the white background, and the little black speech bubble. All combined, it made for a really fun page to look at.

If you Google “typography portrait,” you’ll find tons of tutorials on how to achieve the look. I went an extra step and created some big words along the lines of the image, and that really emphasizes the theme.

started

I started with digital scrapbooking, though now I want to move into doing a little hybrid. I stumbled upon the hobby when my son was born 3 years ago, and when I couldn’t find freebies I wanted, I tried making my own. That’s my start in designing! I have no formal training and it was all self-taught, so it took me a while until I was accepted at a store. I’ve now been selling my designs for about 1.5 years.

inspired

Themes. Usually my inspiration to create comes from photos I need a kit for, and I go find a color palette that will fit it. I’m also very much inspired by quotes; it’s the English major in me!

tools

Computer: I work on a 3-year-old Samsung laptop. It runs on Intel core i5 and has Windows 7. It used to only have 4GB RAM, but I updated it a year ago to 10GB. It’s still barely enough though… I work my poor computer like a horse.

Program: I design in PS CS6, make some patterns in Illustrator CS5, and use Lightroom 4 for organizing my supplies. I also use Art Rage occasionally.

Camera: I have a Nikon P330 and I love it. It’s no DSLR, but it allows me to adjust aperture and shutter speed, and has a manual mode as well. It is compact like a point-and-shoot but also allows me some freedom in how I take my photos. As I said, I love it!

Anything Else: I have a Huion tablet… it’s a small Chinese brand, it’s cheap, and it does what I need it to do. 🙂

tipstricks

Two of my favorite tools in Photoshop are the Burn and the Dodge tools. They work like a brush, but instead of painting colors, the Burn tool darkens and the Dodge tool lightens. With a little practice, you can turn any flat image to look 3D. A fun way to use this is to make your own bubbles. Draw a circle, run the Burn tool along the bottom curve (depending on where the light source is), then switch to the Dodge tool and make a highlight on the opposite corner (if the shadow is on the bottom left, make your highlight on the top right). Lower the opacity of your circle, then you have a fun little bubble!

favorite

With much difficulty, I picked “Korean Wave” as my favorite. It was inspired by my daughter’s 1 year-old birthday photo. She was in a bright pink Korean dress. However, when I wanted to scrap the photo, I couldn’t find any kit that was specifically Korean (most Asian kits out there were inspired by Chinese/Japanese culture) and bright enough (again, most Asian kits out there had dark, rich colors). I decided to make my own Korean kit. I loved Korean fabric, so I looked through pages and pages of it, and finally decided on the colors. I have kept the main kit pretty theme-less, but the collection comes with a themed pack, and I drew most of the elements in that. The Korean costumes in that pack are based on the actual costumes of my kids, and that makes this kit really close to my heart.


DesFav

popular

Another Asian-themed kit, “Cherry Blossom” has been really popular since it was released last spring. One of the very first kits I made had a tree full of paper flowers in it, and I had always wanted to revamp it. I chose a more subdued palette for this kit, and a lot of people told me they liked how airy and soft the kit feels. This kit is special to me because it’s turned out exactly like how I pictured it in my mind, though it took two attempts for me to get there.

Patchwork Memories

According to Wikipedia, Eliza Caroline “Lida” Obenchain was an American author, women’s rights advocate and suffragist from Bowling Green, Kentucky. Lida Obenchain, writing under the pen name Eliza Calvert Hall, was widely known early in the twentieth century for her short stories featuring an elderly widowed woman, “Aunt Jane,” who plainly spoke her mind about the people she knew and her experiences in the rural south.

I hadn’t heard of her before, but I came across this quote of hers and I love it.

I remember being back in high school and watching, How to Make an American Quilt. I loved the idea of quilting and telling stories. That was the same time in my life I got interested in scrapbooking and memory keeping, and I loved how much the two crafts had in common. I think it’s still true today.

As scrapbookers, Eliza’s strong sentiment still lives strong.

Patchwork? Scrapbooking? Ah, no! It was memory, imagination, history, biography, joy, sorrow, philosophy, religion, romance, realism, life, love, and death; and over all, like a halo, the love of the artist for his work and the soul’s longing for earthly immortality.

Stretching Your Stash: Star Wars Birthday Party

One of the things I have loved about learning digital scrapbooking is that it has allowed me to do so much more than just scrap. Using my knowledge and my digi stash, I have been able to create all sorts of things including educational supplies, magazine layouts, home decor, beautiful gifts, and more. With our stash of great stuff, so much is possible!

Last May, my son turned 10. We were getting ready to move (just six days later!) and he really wanted to have a party. Although it was a busy time, we decided to do it so that he could have a chance to say goodbye to all his friends.

Like many boys his age, Star Wars is always on his mind. Naturally, he wanted a Star Wars party. Having never seen the movies myself, I was a little scared. But with the help of the the internet and especially Pinterest, I knew that I could use my digi stash to come up with something fun and memorable.

First, I went searching in my digi supplies. I found an old kit by Traci Reed and Julie Billingsley (the kit is now retired…sorry!)

I also went searching for the perfect font and found Star Jedi on DaFont.

Then, after spending a lot of time on Pinterest, I got to work.

First up was the invitation. I found the wording on Pinterest and after tweaking the colors in the kit, I was happy.

After the invites were printed and delivered, there was much work to be done. I worked with my son to decide on games, decorations, and food. We were living in Indonesia and so our supplies to work with were limited, but we had a great time and pulled off a great party. I couldn’t have done it without my digi stash!


So, have you ever used your digi supplies for a party? I’d love to hear all about it!
