It is just your preference what you would like to do. Your typical door welcome can be removed and replaced with one that says Happy Holidays. You can skip your door bell if you have a knocker installed with jingle bells. The sky is the limit when it comes to decorating. Use your imagination and add your special touch. You can surround the door with garland that is pretty during the day and lit up at night. If your child has colored a pretty picture, add it as a focus point to share with others. Children love the recognition, we all know the refrigerator is an art magnet.
Post extraordinary pictures. Avoid posting pics of your abs because hot girls are not really interested in those things. You can post pictures with cool friends or pictures of extreme sports. travel pictures are also interesting. Since we are talking about travel pictures, let’s see how RandomTravelpics relates to it. Don’t post pictures that show you’re drunk and instead, post pictures together with nice-looking girls. This will show that you’re also a gentleman and a social guy.
Tap into your happy childhood. Go through your old photos when you were a carefree kid excited about the holidays. Use a color copier and to enlarge them to 8×10, 11×14 or 16×20 mini posters for decorations. You can put them in inexpensive plastic box or clip frames. If you have old holiday pictures of friends and family who will be coming to visit you, make some fun mini posters of them too. Think of how good that will make them feel to see themselves in your home.
To display the photo standup – use fun picture clips, attach a magnet to the back, or purchase (from a craft store) a precut, slotted strip of wood or plastic to hold photos upright. You can also make a stand from the heavy card stock or foamboard.
Interesting and frightening at the same time, isn’t it? A teacher was fired in Georgia for posting vacation pictures on her Facebook page, which was not open to students or parents. The reason she was fired? There were a couple of photos of her drinking wine and beer with meals during her European vacation!
Here’s another photo from Venice, in which I photographed St. Mark’s Basilica and Campanile reflected in the window of a shop across the square. The shop was located in an arcade separated from the square by stone archways. The reflection was so clear that it was almost like looking through a window, yet where the archway blocked the reflection you can see the interior of the store, making for a dual image. I took plenty of more traditional photos of St. Mark’s that are successful for other reasons, but I like this one for its unusual perspective.
When was the last time you took your family to get a holiday picture taken? Where you as upset as I was when I discovered that I had to sell my car to get the pictures? OK maybe it wasn’t that bad, but it was ridiculously high. A lot of people can no longer afford to have these holiday memories captured. There is no reason for these prices. This is how you are going to make your money. All you need is a nice colored backdrop a camera and a printer. Set up a small studio in your garage.
