I’ve started up my Instagram project #NNDailyTip again, where I share a daily memory keeping tip, then collect them here so you can find them easily later! This time I’m sharing tips for documenting TV and movies:
I'm reviving #nndailytip after a long hiatus! This week I'm going to be sharing about documenting movies. They can have a meaningful impact on your development and your culture, but it's not the most photo friendly thing for scrapbooking. I've got tips. The easiest way to grab a visual representation of a movie is to use the official version–get a photo used for advertising the film online, take a picture of a poster, or use some advertising as memorabilia. For this spread about seeing Rocky Horror Picture Show in a park, I also took pictures of the location. This is only acceptable under certain circumstances, but if you are shooting the screen, make sure you've turned off your flash!
This week #nndailytip posts are all about documenting movies and TV! This page has two ideas: take a photo in front of a movie poster when you go to the cinema–we asked a passerby to take this one. You can also note amazing / long awaited episodes with pocket cards like this one about Game of Thrones! #awesomeladiesbyrukristin
For this week's #nndailytip we're talking documenting movies and television. Instead of documenting specific movies, consider recording how you watch them. Do you have a favorite theater? Do you have cable, or are you a cable cutter? Streaming services like Netflix have changed how we watch–this is a sign of our times that is worth noting! Maybe you want to go back in time and reminisce about your VHS collection or movie rental stores! How did you / do you watch movies?
This week's #nndailytip is all about movies. I mentioned already that I try to grab a photo with the movie poster when I go see a movie at the theater. Sometimes I ask a passerby to take it, but that's not always an option. It's hard to get the poster in with a hold-out-your-arm selfie, so I'll find something to set the phone on and use a self timer. Pretty proud of this one, which had the phone balanced on a railing. Tools like selfie sticks or wrap around phone tripods (I use a GorillaPod) are helpful too.
This week's #nndailytip is all about documenting movies and TV. One way I like to document TV is by taking photos of my family gathered to watch at home. This isn't just recording part of how we spend time together, it's also fun to look at over time (the kids go through sniffle phases for sure). I usually try to get a shot like this for my monthly #dayinthelife
