You Can Take a Picture of a Picture

Have you ever been at someone’s house and saw pictures that you wish you had a copy of? You can. Just grab your camera. No need to have them scanned or bring them somewhere to pay for one.

Grab the picture and take it outside, or a bright room. Make sure you get the whole image and click away. I take some in our laundry room and prop it up on the dryer. I just use my auto focus. Make sure the photo is not behind glass or the picture will have bright spots from the flash if it comes up.

When I download them on my computer, all I have to do is crop it and it’s mine. I do the same for recipes, things in books or magazines, that way I don’t have to write it down. In this day and age, writing out a long recipe is torture!

Here is an example of one of the pictures I did recently:


You may have to play around with placement to avoid bright spots or shadow. Still, not a bad price to pay for getting your hands on old family photos.
