Christmas time is around the corner so it's time to start thinking about your next family card!
This is a little tutorial on how to take the photo for the Reindeer Presents LiiArtsa card so you can try to replicate the sense of fun that you feel when you see this card!
Find a wall in your house with good lighting but not direct light. A plain wall free from any clutter is the best position for this photo. Make sure the wall you choose doesn't have the same colour in it as the clothes your subject is wearing or it makes it difficult for me to mask the subject from the wall.
Get your kids ready, make sure they are close together (this works best with two people, the more people, the smaller they will appear from the box) and ask them to crouch down and jump up like they are jumping out of a box. Do it a few times so they know what it feels like - my kids had so much fun doing this! Then ask them to freeze their pose when they are fully stretched. Take a few photos of different 'surprise' faces and hand actions, then choose the best one and send it to LiiArtsa! If you have a few that are favourites, send them all through and I'll choose the one that best fits the invite.
Now go and create some memories and remember, it's all about having fun and catching your child's playfulness on camera!!!
