We’re technically only a month into summer here in the northern hemisphere, so there’s plenty of time to capture summer’s beautiful light using tips in this guest post from Jennifer Conlon. As social media manager, Jen is a key member of the Simple Scrapper administrative team. She is an avid Pinterest user and runs the Quality DigiScrap Freebies site.

I do occasionally scrapbook during the summer but most of my time is spent trying to keep my two active boys entertained. We go to the park, the beach, in the sprinkler, camping, to amusement parks, and more… and I am sure to have at least one camera with me at all times.


Whether you are taking snapshots at the beach with your mobile phone or setting up a photo shoot at your local park, here are 21 tips to get the best photographs this summer so you’ll have plenty of beautiful memories to scrapbook this winter.
