Photo Tips

  1.  Be sure your photo is clear and sharp.  Fuzzy photos cannot be made sharp enough for print.
  2. Look at your photo with a critical eye.  Would it be of interested to a wide variety of people?
  3. Make sure that the background of the photo does not detract from the subject of the photo.
