Sharing is caring
We need your help in sharing what VFW Post 688 is doing and accomplishing
Here are some tips to get the best photos
Fill the frame with people, unless the background serves a purpose
Try to take photos chest up, or at the very least waist up
If you need something in the background, have the people move closer to the camera-leaving the object still in the frame (accomplishing 1 & 2)
Be patient-if someone is uncomfortable, give them a compliment
Candid photos are just as important as posed ones
Here are some tips to get the best videos
If you are recording an event with a mic & speaker, sit close to the speaker
Try recording simple candid moments using the photo tips above
If you are using a phone, record in landscape/horizontal
Anchor yourself and the camera to avoid shaking
Move slowly if you must move
You've got photos and video to share, now what?
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org with the images and video you would like to share.
Name the files 01_Event_Date, 02_Event_Date, etc
Caption the files in the email using the name of the file, names of individuals in the photo/video, and a brief description
Optional: include a write up of the entire event
Want to share a photo to FB immediately?
DM 1 photo to the FB account with a caption, including names, event, and location.
An admin will post and check into the location as soon as possible.
I hope this blog post was helpful.
