HOW TO TAKE GREAT PHOTOGRAPHS DURING THE HOLIDAY SEASON ? 

 

The end of year celebrations are synonymous with convivials moments, glittering decorations and sometimes snowy landscapes. 

 

Immortalize these moments with your camera thanks to our tips for having photographs like a professional photographer.

 

Use a warm light

During winter, the night falls down early and the lights are soft and subdued. Check your exposure settings to have great shots, even by candlelight.

 

Set the white balance to “tungstène” mode (light bulb icon), ideal for orange shades photos.

Low light also rhymes with ISO adjustment, so increase sensitivity while paying attention to the grain of the image and the flash. 

 

Immortalize moments of emotion.

Festive season is the opportunity to take beautiful family photos, our loved ones’ portraits and last but not least, photos of astounded children unwrapping their gift under the christmas tree. Your 50mm lens will be sufficient to take portrait photographs. 

 

Vary the angles and play with the depth of the shots.

A blur foreground as a Christmas decoration and a clear main scene should create relief in your images. Remember to get closer to the subject, use your zoom and a large aperture (small value of F) for staged and worked backgrounds. The good idea: to venture into the Christmas markets and to photograph Christmas windows’ details.

 

Playing with the scenery

If you would like more original pictures, the christmas tree and tinsels are great subjects to try to do bokehs, these luminous shapes artistically blurred. Get started!

 

Put the self-timer!

Do not forget yourself. Even though it is not used quite a lot, the self-timer permits you to be on the festive season’s pictures. 

 

To please and spoil your loved ones is part of the Christmas spirit. Choose the shots that deserve to be hang on the wall among your most beautiful photographs, and opt for an argentic print.
