Simple Tip Saturdays are all about giving easy ideas for you to grab and run.
We talk a lot about embracing imperfection in scrapbooking. From finding peace with some stray adhesive to deliberately placing a digital paper askew, we are growing more secure with good enough scrapbook pages.
This trend, however, seems to be skirting around an essential component of our memory keeping, our photography. In fact, the movement has been more towards bigger cameras with better glass and a crusade for perfectly exposed images.
I think it’s time we put it out there that any photo is better than no photo. It is time we fully embrace and even celebrate ordinary not-perfect photos from the cameras we have with us.
For many of us this is a phone. Regardless if you have 1 or 5 megapixels, camera phone images can capture a breathtaking moment just as well. With so many options for technical and creative editing, it is even possible to polish a diamond in the rough.
This weekend I want you to think about how you can incorporate your camera phone into your memory keeping and feel warm and fuzzy about it.
