Photo Tip Tuesday: It’s all in the setup!

Christmas Peace-Andria Lavine Photography - photo

Today’s tip is short and sweet – Sometimes you have to take the time to set up a shot.

This little “Peace” accessory was received on a Christmas present last year and I really wanted to do something with it. I finally decided on styling the shot you see above using:

– My Christmas tree lights for the background
– A light stand across a chair to dangle the accessory in front of the Christmas lights
– And the flashlight from my iPhone to light the star!

Think outside the box! Solicit extra hands! Envision in your mind the shot you want and then try to create it! The beauty of digital photography is that you get instantaneous results and can try again if you don’t like what you get!


Make lots of memories and be sure to take lots of pictures as you share this time with family and friends!

Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays!
