Interesting & Fun Picture Taking Tips

This will be our sixth trip to Disney. My family is SOOOO sick of the standard "posing in front of attractions" kind of pictures. But, I'm not very creative. And I can't go to the parks and NOT take pictures -- that just doesn't seem right! Anyone have ideas for me to take new, interesting and fun pictures of my family and the parks? Thanks!

I usually try to make sure the person/people I'm photographing are doing something. Most often, it involves our adult kids behaving like children

Our sixth family trip is coming up this summer as well. I plan to try and re-create some of our pictures from years past. I've been going through our old scrapbooks and picking out my favorites.

I'm planning on bringing a Gumby and Pokey and posing them around Disney world like they are visiting... Kind of like people do with the traveling gnomes. If I have enough free time I would like to make a short stop-motion film with them, maybe with the castle in the background. There are a couple of good apps for that.

One Disser a while back had her family jump up in the photo...so in each pic they were all off the ground...it was cute, I thought.

the best tip I have is to take a jillion pictures. Memory is cheap. Just keep snapping away. Some of the best pics I have ever taken are when my kids don't know they're being photographed. Just take a bunch.
