Coming up this -- and of course it's Easter is a big day for family photos.
And there are actually simple things that you can do to make sure those Easter pictures come out.
Close to perfect NetSuite would as the president of unique -- New Jersey and joins me now to help.
Me and many others figure out how to do just that good morning to you good morning.
I -- we start with this beautiful photo here of that you're gonna tell me what's wrong with the top one and what's good about the bottom one.
And when a lot of people diabetes you wanna put -- cost him on -- right -- right with the -- went well.
You know that this kind of thing it looks it looks like a good idea seems like a good idea when you're about to do it but then when you put the baby and it it's very hard to get the child and it in unnatural position it's over done.
If you look at how the towel is sitting in there it's kind of it's unnatural and UN there with a photograph that you kind of regret later on I don't think.
The child in the proper we're gonna want to see the photograph in the bottom one.
What would you might have been to sentence -- -- anyway what is what's good about the bottom yet.
It's a much more natural position there was some thought you know sort of less is more.
If you notice there's less costume on the BB.
The cost -- has something to do with the background that it's sitting in.
Armed and you can see it's a natural position and that's kind of how you -- -- remember there's just too much of this I mean you go on the Internet you see all sorts of you know funny things on with children and people really regret -- after an -- Let's sit down here and talk about the family photo does -- people try to capture that this weekend.
Now the top one other people look great but you're saying obviously is a little too far away.
Right and and this is a case this is the most common kind of picture that you take and what people do is.
They space -- distance that's comfortable and they issued a picture and you got a lot of grass in this one it's a little bit out of focus because the camera picked up on the grass.
We're picked up in front of them and they became out of focus you have.
Lawn chairs and a relatively ugly background if you look in the in this really photograph from the bottom we filled the -- so really the family is filling the frame.
There to better oppose positioned to and this is used something called the wider aperture which you can use either a long lens and focus in or you can use a camera like this -- actually have with me.
Canon's new -- one this is the -- -- smallest.
The DSL are available.
Armed and this camera's gonna be out in a month or so and this has a very wide aperture so you can get a very shallow depth of field I think and you get a much better picture of the gambling.
So even somebody like me could take nice picture iPad.
Yeah absolutely not be technologically and is trying to -- -- that you shoot you can't -- -- Let's move over to -- -- beautiful scene a single shot of your child on Easter and this has everything to do with the sunlight.
I mean this is a very very typical kind of shot that you -- but if you see the sun was in her face she couldn't keep her eyes open it washed out the color on her face.
And it -- just an uncomfortable photograph it's a pretty girl.
And you know that it's kind of nice but you can do something better with the white -- should be your friend and in this case.
The young boy is placed in a way where the -- create a little -- groups.
Over the over his head and -- -- nicely on its face polite is even on his face and he's able to keep a better -- so that.
The picture comes out he's not squinting so this is a major thing people always wonder.
Are you supposed to have -- depiction that you're taking a person in front of the sun or in back of this well you.
You never want to -- really behind the person physical -- the camera you want the -- some angle in front but not directly in the rise and that's exactly what's happening in this still looking at the camera and the sun.
Right thank you so much for the tips and that -- -- president of unique.
