Wednesday Photography Tips: Christmas Party

Christmas Party Photography Tips

We all get so involved in the joy of Christmas that we may need to remember one or two crucial tips while taking pictures. Therefore, print this cheat sheet and follow the recommendations for better holiday pictures.  

Christmas Party Photography Cheat Sheet

  1. To avoid camera shake or subject blur, use a minimum shutter speed of 1/60 sec
  2. Use the widest open Aperture that your lens offers. The lower the f-stop, allows you shoot in lower ISO.
  3. Don’t shy about using Auto ISO. New digital cameras can handle higher ISO. 
  4. Get closer and try different angles for detailed photos of Christmas decorations.
  5. People move and blink! When taking pictures of people, use Continuous Drive, and take more than one shot.
  6. Capture the joy of the season by taking funny photos. These playful images make Christmas photography more enjoyable. 
  7. And above all, don’t let the limitations discourage you from taking photos. Use your artistic talent to overwrite the low light or camera’s limitations.
