Photo Tips

New Photo-Recipe, Photo Gift Ideas & @NateBerkusShow Field Trip!

Me Ra Koh

Today is going to be fun!  We’ve got a handful of things up our sleeve!

1. What’s the Coolest, New Photo Gift?  Answer: Printing on METAL!

Not only do we love Nate, but we also love those Metal Panels on the show!

(never going to wash that kiss away!  :))

These Metal Panels are right from the walls of my home!  I LOVE them!  People on set went crazy over them!!  They are totally the NEW way to display photos!  And it’s a perfect photo gift for the holidays!  You can order the Metal Panels through CanvasRox!

I also love them because it makes the photo look 3-D.  It’s insane! CanvasRox also does the Chromalux Panels too (that we talked about on the show)!  And the cost for Metal and Chromalux is a third of the price of having a canvases printed!  Seriously, this is my Favorite Photo Gift idea!   (And a BIG, HUGE THANK YOU to Roxie of CanvasRox for helping me pull these favorite products together for the show.  Roxanne, you are awesome!)

2.  Hear the Story Behind this Family of THREE Babies Under Two!  It’s Amazing! (get Kleenex)

3. Answering Your Mail!

Nate Berkus viewers are sending in the BEST questions about our Photo Segments.  Lots of you have asked what SONY camera I’m using, what lens, etc.  We did some Behind-the-Scenes videos where I answer your questions!

So c’mon!  Let’s take a Field Trip to The Nate Berkus Show website!

But that’s not all!  I’ve also go a NEW Photo-Recipe for Capturing the Modern Family Holiday Photo!  Within the Photo-Recipe, I go a little deeper with all of you on what the steps are and how to set up your camera whether you have a Point-and-Shoot or DSLR!  Enjoy and keep sending questions to the show for me!  We all love getting your questions and will continue to answer them for you!

4.  Hip, Seattle-Style, Photo Card!

Meet GH Kim Photography!!!  They are Seattle based photographers who I adore!
