Trick-or-Treating photography tips & Kodak's Free Print Week!

Being a parent of an only (for now) child, I tend to take a lot of photos of Little One! Yes, A LOT of photos! Halloween is an exciting time (and an occasion that gives ample photo opportunities)!  How can a parent resist taking pics of their little cuties all decked out in adorable costumes?

Kodak has these tips for parents (like me!) who will be snapping a million Halloween photos two weeks from now!

"Whether they’re posing for the camera or running to the next house for candy, keep these tips in mind when capturing the excitement of your little witches and goblins parading in their costumes:

·         Check your settings: Digital cameras have a special feature for night-time photography called Night Portrait which captures the subject and background clearly. Better yet, the Kodak EasyShare Touch Digital Camera features Kodak’s Smart Capture which automatically adjusts camera exposure, focus, and ISO for clear pictures in any environment, even in low light.
·         Keep it steady: For night-time photography, using a tripod will help to eliminate blur in your photos. Don’t have a tripod handy? No problem. Brace your camera on a railing or a solid surface.
·         Include a silhouette: Add some depth and perspective to your Halloween photos. Turn off your camera's flash option and photograph silhouettes in the foreground--like the silhouette of a jack-o-lantern or the wings of a fairy costume.
·         Add some blur in your background: The Kodak EasyShare Touch features a variety of post-capture effects and retouching tools, including background blur. Adding the background blur effect will create more emphasis on your subject.

Spooky Photography
Making people appear transparent, ghostly, two-headed, and just plain eerie in photos is easy to achieve, even without costumes. Try these spooky photo ideas to scare your friends and family this Halloween.

Great tips for capturing cool, memorable moments our kids will cherish forever! Thanks, Kodak! Oh! Wait! It gets even better!
