New Releases at The Digichick June 21, 2018

Hey y’all!  I’ve been slacking the last couples of weeks on posting new releases. Sorry ’bout that. I’ve been very busy creating something new for you. I’ll have more news on that soon. I’ve also been trying to get my paperwork caught up at my day job. Eek!

I did manage to get a few layouts completed this week using three of this week’s new releases. Designer credits are beneath each layout and the collection name is linked to the store and on sale now!  As we say in Texas, get ’em while the gettin’s good.  Now, without further ado.

Flash Photography for Beginners

Flash photography is challenging, especially for beginners.  Professional photographers may shoot in studio or outside but you can bet they have some great equipment that makes the most of the available light and they know all the tricks of the trade regarding flash.

Today I’m sharing a link to two videos that discuss various techniques you can use to make your photos look better when using flash.  I especially like the first video which compares the different looks achieved with a variety of flash choices.  I like that he uses people and different surroundings and lighting situations.  Both videos have great information and I hope you find them useful.  Check out the videos here.  Leave a comment if you think these tips will help you.

Use It All Challenge at The Digichick

The Use It All Challenge at The Digichick is always one of my favorites.  What’s not to like?  You get a free mini kit to create a layout and you get to take part in a challenge.  I’m always up for that.  In addition to the mini kit, I added a couple of elements from the full-size kit that was released this week.  I’ve included links to the challenge and the new kit which is on sale.

Graphics Tablet Choosing and Setting Up

Are you in the market for a graphics tablet but don’t know where to start?  Graphics tablets can take you to another level with your digital scrapbooking.  You can make much smoother marks with a pen than with a mouse.  They also relieve hand and wrist pain many people experience. But there are so many to choose from and steps to set them up for the best performance.

 

Tiffany Emanuel’s class, With My Sword & Shield: Pen & Tablet Techniques for Digital Scrapbookers, will help you decide which Wacom tablet is best for you.  Then she will walk you through setting up drivers and tablet settings to get the best performance.

This class was part of the Scrapaneers Live event earlier this year.  Now, you can get it as a self-paced class that you can refer back to as needed.  It’s only $28 and you can get it here.
