Easy Photography Techniques

Birdie Toy and The SnapShotz Photography Board Game®


Our interest in photography techniques started out by creating a "Birdie" toy with Smile for Me Toys™. The Original "Birdie" Toy was designed to help get infants and toddlers, distant teens, relatives and friends to smile for your camera, tablet or cell phone.  Fun Photo Booths got more popular and we always had fond memories of family board game night so.......

The SnapShotz Photography Board Game® was created in 2015 which uses "any camera (smart phone, tablet or iPhone) around a table where cards are drawn for poses and photography and photo booth props are used throughout the game." (US Patent and Trademark reg. no. 4,809,362)

(Special thanks to Cartoonist Emily Caesar, "Watch the Birdie" Written by Don Raye and Gene DePaul, as sung by Anita O'Day with Gene Krupa and Roy Eldridge. SmileForMeToys dedicates it to another great American Icon with her connections to the song, Martha Raye in which her legacy of support of U.S Troops lives on with us.)

Photography is not all fun and games to us.  We take the art of photography seriously and this website was designed to provide you with just the right amount of photo-taking info to help people create some special and memorable photos.  Our toys and games hopefully will also help "make it fun to smile for the camera." 

All you need are some really good, simple and straightforward photography tips that can help you "wing it" and make a difference right away no matter what type of camera, tablet or cell phone that you own!
