Photography and Precious Memories

Photography covers many genres and the different camera and photography techniques and equipment used makes a huge difference to the finished product. Below you will find the expertise that will save you a lot of money in photography courses and photography classes and a lot of time.

This work contains information on most types of photography from still life photography to nature photography, landscape photography and wedding photography. How to edit photographs and make photo collages are also dicussed plus find a great photography magazine, photograpy equipment, photo editor and tips and tricks to improve your photographs.

You can also visit photography websites to disover modern photography techniques and what equipment is best suited to your needs. The information here is as good as or better than some expensive courses and it's all free

Everyone has photos and just about everyone has a problem with storing them unless they are very well organized. My photos amount to probably several hundred and unfortunately most are stuck in old fashioned albums, whereby they are now very hard to remove This lens aims to give you some ideas about best photography practices and introduces some special systems that help store photos in ways you never dreamed of. With the technology of the modern age digital photos can now be stored on computers and on discs, and so forth, but take a look at what else you can do with them.

This could be the future Miss Universe, if they had such a thing back then. This image of me on Bondi Beach is not the most flattering but it shows the damage that stored photos can suffer over the years.

This image is precious as there were so few opportunities for photos in those days and this was taken by a freelance photographer who would charge probably less than 10 cents for a shot. That was a lot of money for my folks.

Today's photos can be stored correctly on computers, on discs. videos and in albums or books. With digital cameras and the clever way they work there is no excuse for not keeping precious images precious.

But the picture looks old, has lost detail and unless treated or reproduced it may not last much longer.

Now there are new ways to store photos to help them survive the rigours of time. The following provide real answers

The Change in Camera Technology

Now its all just point and click

My brother gave me my first camera when I was about 8 to 9 years old. It was the greatest thing anyone has ever given me.

With that small black box thing I took oodles of photos that I still go back to to remember my childhood and the lovely family members, who are no longer here. No one else in the family were keen photographers but it was my hobby and although the cost of film and developing of it was expensive (at least for me) for some 8 or 9 years my memories are recorded.

Every child should have a camera to explore their world. Its far better to photograph the environment than to destroy it. With mobile phones that are also cameras there is no need to purchase one if they have the former, But recently I bought a small digital camera, the first for many years, and am loving the simplicity of it. It is very similar to the one shown.

Now it is up to me to look after the photos of my family, my grandchildren and of the things around us. Whilst my children are all keen on photography and there are hundreds, if not thousands, of images of us it is still the small camera that I own that takes my fancy. It reminds me of that wonderful gift from my loving and lovely brother.

It zooms in and out, focuses itself, has flash and a lot of whistles and knobs that I still can't quite configure. I know I can also take a short video on it as well. Its all great news for oldies like me who have difficulty with new fanged technology at times. At least now I can sound like an expert even if I am not one.

If you print your own photos then you could look at this company for ink at bargain prices. It works with high quality manufacturers to provide a 100% guarantee on all re-manufactured, compatible inkjet products and refill ink. They give great customer service and super fast shipping for a smooth transaction. Click banner for more info.

There is now a powerful and easy-to-use software for creating scrapbooks, photobooks, calendars, and much more that will not only inspire you but make taking photos a hobby rather than just a passing fancy. It offers intuitive tools and multiple sharing options that is sheer joy

Whether an amateur or pro this system delivers enhanced time-saving features that you may just become addicted to. You need to preserve those precious memories that will never return. The babies first steps, the children's joy at their birthday parties, What of their first days at school. Of the many friends and interests they share. The list goes on but being able to look back on them is not something to take lightly.

This software will help you build beautiful pages from scratch or from one of the many professionally designed templates provided within. It contains a large collection of digital graphics; thousands of papers and embellishments at your fingertips. Each page becomes your own unique creation. Drop in your pictures in seconds then crop, edit, retouch and rotate them right on the page. You can also drop in other graphics created in other programs.

In 2000 CEIVA Logic, Inc. was founded by former Disney executives with a pioneering vision: to bring the world together through the power of digital photography. Industry leaders then and now. It was the first company to invent and market digital photo frames. Their award-winning, patented technology has positioned their product line as the premier choice in the marketplace

The frame comes with an email address so you can send pictures to your frame via cell phone or from your computer. How good is that? Click and send - simple.

As an added bonus, these frames can be updated daily with new photos that were uploaded over the Internet, sent via email or even sent with a camera phone, providing an instant way to share happy memories. Once photos are automatically downloaded to the frame the signature blue light will flash indicating there are new photos that have arrived. You don't have to do a thing!

Create Art From Pictures

Your picture can be your next wall painting.

Art that does not come from artists

Look again at the image. Its someone's picture on a canvas ready to hang on their living room wall. The canvas can be of your baby, grandchildren, pets, favorite country scene, or be a memory from a trip. The list if endless. If you have a treasured shot then why not get it put onto a canvas to enjoy forever.

This is not a pipe dream but reality and why pay for a painting where you have not been involved with the place or subject of it? if you have a wall that;s in need of a picture then what could be better than having it of something that you partly created.

This is a family owned Company that offers great deals and it is a great place to consider getting some lovely canvas works of your photos. They also make great presents for members of the family, for friends, and for business acquaintances. As time is running out to get them before Christmas you should check them out now and take advantage of the special discount on offer.

      Good tips. I am not very good at editing my photos, but I always take them on the highest quality, and keep them on my laptop. I have plenty of backups as well, ensuring that I won't lose them should my computer hard drive fail.

      @LisaAuch1: I ned another external hard drive too. I have a 500gb to backup my laptop, another for Debbie's, and both are practically full. With an ever growing photo collection, we need at least 1 2gb external drive. They are still expensive in the UK though.

      @AuthorNormaBudden: Thanks Norma, for visiting and commenting. It must be your browser as the Old pics worth storing lines up perfectly on my fox, but I take your point. With the other one I left it to spill out because firstly that is the size of the banner and secondly it is a panorama which is huge. I will see if I can adjust it if its causing grief.

      Informative lens.

      On another note, just in case you didn't realize it, in your module, "Old Pics Worth Storing," the text to the right of the photo spills outside of the border you've set. Also, the "Create Art from Pics" photo comes past the right margin of your border. A little adjustment in numbers should work nicely.

      I've had situations where using the Talk Bubble caused me grief - I'd set the module up, publish the lens and the lens looked great. However, recent changes in the module seems to allow only a comfortable 50 letters as opposed to 100 - so imagine my surprise when I looked back at my lenses! I had to make some major changes.

      Nice lens Norma! BTW, if that old pic of you as a little girl is fading... you may want to take it to a good photographer who can take a high quality picture of that picture... so you have a back up in the case the original keeps fading. And thanks for telling me that my contact button was off... I thought it was on... whoops! Matt :)
