Focus on photos

Sometimes, the simplest way to update your layouts is to work on the main element... your photos.

Make sure you always have your camera ready and try to capture people, places or experiences in a new or interesting light. If you have a digital camera, it's easy and inexpensive to snap multiple photos and disgard those which don't turn out.

Here are a few from a recent trip to Lake O'Hara that I love:

Try to avoid taking the standard, all in a line family photos, mix things up and your pictures will look more natural.

I find that changing the angle of your photos makes them a little more interesting. Try looking at things from a different perspective, above, below, through things, etc. And take lots!!

Just have fun with it and don't be afraid to experiment!
