This is a really good intro into Christmas photography, covering almost everything you would want to cover, in a short space of time.
It’s not exhaustive, but brings up some really good ideas, like shooting in burst fire mode during the present opening, to capture to best photos possible on Christmas morning. I really like the DIY photo booth idea.
I’m a big fan of photography challenges, because they force you to use your camera, and be creative, which is never a bad thing. I’ve even created my own 30 day photography challenge, and this is very similar.
It runs for the whole of Advent, right up to, and including Christmas day.
Sure, it’s pretty basic, but it’s not supposed to be hard, it’s supposed to entice you to pick up your camera, and get those creative juices flowing.
Christmas means winter (in the northern hemisphere), and winter means snow. You might be inclined to think that your landscape photography skills will transfer over to your snow photography, but I think you would likely be mistaken.
Particularly when it comes to white balance and exposure. You camera is going to have a fit when it sees all of that white, and that’s why you need to take control yourself.
I have never eaten more in one day, than I did on Christmas day 2011. Amazing food, and lots of it, and lets face it, in the age of Instagram, don’t we all love taking photos of our food?
These two articles cover food photography nicely, providing you with useful information, without boring you.
