Creating albums can also make you a better photographer

I have owned a succession of cameras over the years, from point and shoots, to SLR’s. I LOVE the quality of my SLR photos, but I don’t love how big and heavy that camera is, and I only have that camera on me when I plan it. Which is not often these days. It is just so easy and simple to use the camera on my phone. The quality of the camera on our phones has also improved dramatically over the last 5 years, so it’s not so much of a compromise any more.

I am passionate about my family photos, and creating story books of our lives for not just our children, but for future generations. I could write and write (and write) about the benefits of doing so, but I’m going to save you that ‘lecture’ today. What I am going to share is that through this passion, and having created many albums and books, I’ve learned a few key lessons in photography.

When sharing my albums, I am often asked if I’m a photographer. People fall in love with how my albums look, but worry that there’s won’t look the same, because their photos are not as good.

Can I tell you that it’s true! Sadly, albums do just look better with better photos. It doesn’t mean you shouldn’t create albums if your photos are not sharp, it’s just that they are more visually appealing when the photos are better. And it’s easy to do.

The other good news is – is that all of the photos in my albums over the last few years, have simply been taken on my phone. No fancy camera, no fancy editing afterwards, no add ons – just point and shoot with my mobile phone camera.
