Valentine’s day is coming, and we’re sure you’d want to capture its beautiful moments for the rest of your lives. After all, it’s about those precious moments with your partner. You’d not only want to click photos but would also like to keep them as souvenirs of your beautiful relationship.
However, enjoying the day and clicking the photos simultaneously can be challenging. Heck, it can even ruin the mood.
To help you take photos while still enjoying your day, we have compiled a list of useful tips. Follow these, and we’re sure you’ll click unforgettable photos without ruining your Valentine’s day!
Tip#1: Capture Candid Moments
Since you are there to click photos, you’d not want to ruin the moment by being caught posing. The best way is to capture moments when your partner least expects it. Try to take pictures of your partner without letting them know about it.
The fact is, candid photos work amazingly to give you a sense of nostalgia when you look at them in the future. So go ahead, try to click as many candids as possible!
Also, don’t forget to capture those beautiful, spontaneous moments you and your partner share as they are as perfect as posed photos.
Tip#2: Look for Beautiful Backdrops
Backdrops can add a beautiful touch to your photos. You could either stay at a place where you had your first date or go to a new location together. Make sure you select valentine’s day backdrops that suit the surroundings and your personality type.
For example, you wouldn’t want to invest in a rose background if your partner is allergic to roses. So, try to remember what your partner loves the most (recall moments in the past when they’ve repeatedly mentioned some item or food dish). Then, see if you can get a backdrop for the same.
Tip#3: Choose Natural-looking Pose
No one likes awkward posed photos of themselves. In case they’re too stiff and cheesy, it can ruin the mood, and you’d not want that happening on Valentine’s day. To prevent it, choose natural-looking poses. Such poses also make the photos more authentic.
Tip#4: Capture the Moment without Blocking It
This one’s obvious. However, many couples ignore this and ruin their photos. When taking selfies, make sure that your partner is not blocked by your camera/phone. Your photo can become annoying if you block their face with your phone’s camera. For this, try to hold your camera such that your fingers are away from the lens.
Tip#6: Use a Selfie Stick or Tripod
If it’s too difficult to click selfies with your phone, you could use a tripod. This will also give you those all-important angles that look too perfect in those captured moments.
Moreover, you could also use a selfie stick to click pictures. It might feel weird at first, especially if you’re not the kind who takes selfies every day, but you will soon get used to it.
Tip#7: Take Your Time to Take the Perfect Shot
No matter how skilled you think about clicking photos, capturing beautiful moments on holiday like Valentine’s Day can be quite challenging. To get those perfect clicks, you need to spend a lot of time on it. Plan your day and take your time. Rushing to take photos will only ruin them.
Also, control your breathing while clicking photos. If you breathe heavily, you will not be able to take the perfect shot.
It’s not just about clicking photos; it’s about carrying memories on your phone, tablet, PC or digital camera, which you can cherish for years to come.
So, make sure you keep the above tips in mind. Follow them, and we’re sure you’ll create some everlasting memories together with your partner!
