Skiing and My Kodak Moment’s app

It has been an epic winter for skiiing.  My family spent last Saturday tearing it up on the slopes; what a bluebird day!  I grabbed a few shots with my iPhone — I love the colors of downhill skiing, especially on a sunny day.

These shots were so good I made a quick photo book with them, using the KODAK My Kodak Moments app.  It took me 10 minutes to create the book; all you need to do is download and start the app, select “Create and Order from Phone”, select “Simple Picture Books”, pick your size, and make it.  The app lets you use all those smartphone pictures you are taking but never seem to make it in print.  I picked 10 shots, did a simple reorder, picked my nearest Target store, and voila — I will pick up the book on my way home.

A memorable day, now even more memorable with my simple photo book!

Photographing Winter

I think Winter gets the short end of the stick when it comes to photography. It doesn’t seem like we take as many photos in the cold weather as we do in the summer. Even though there are plenty of winter activities and photo ops.

Whenever we get a significant snowfall I take my camera out.

I especially like to get photos of my favorite furry subjects.

This winter I even took some night shots after a big snow storm.

It was so bright out it almost looks like daytime! I’m so glad I ventured out.

Living where we do, the cold weather encourages us to participate in winter sports. Snowshoeing…

Ice skating….

Also snowboarding, cross country skiing, sledding and snow tubing. I’ve even thought about ice fishing. All these deserve to be captured in photos to be remembered later on.

Here are some good winter photography tips that can help you get the best photos out in the snow.

I think my next photo book won’t be of the beach. Time to head to a Kodak Picture Kiosk. Winter photos can make great photo books, cards and collages!
