1. Shoot from different angles. Try from above, below, crooked, etc.
2. Use natural light if at all possible. Try to keep the flash off unless ABSOLUTELY necessary!
3. Capture the details. Don’t always get the full picture, do some cropping. Instead of getting Suzy opening the present, close in on her little hands ripping the paper off.
4. Remove the distractions. Get rid of the garbage can, extra knick knacks, etc that are unnecessary.
5. Present them well & Tell a Story!
