Family Photo Tips For The Holidays

Family funFamily fun

The holidays are right around the corner and what better time to take family photos.  Here's a few quick tips to help capture lasting memories.

Let your family come together naturally, joking around a little before the shot gets rid of the tight smiles and helps everyone relax.  No need to say cheese as everyone will already be smiling.  

During formal shots remind family members if they can't see the camera then the camera can't see them.  

Photographing a large family it is helpful to bring in lamps from a different room so everyone is lighted evenly bringing balance to the image. Check to be sure that the bulbs have the same "color temperature"  (soft white, incandescent (yellow cast), etc).  This of course requires a little advance planning but it will be worth it to have a special keepsake.

Stepping away from the action and using your cameras zoom feature will help you achieve great cameo shots.

Remember to give your camera to a family member so you have images of yourself and enjoy the time with family.

 


The best gift of the season

December 10, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

What makes a great infant image?  Sometimes less is more.  Props are great but the focus should be on the child, the subject of the photograph.  I see more and more props being used, shifting the focus from the infant to the scene.  You lose what is most precious about the image the new life that was brought into the world.  I believe in keeping the focus where it should be on the infant.  To learn more about my style of photography call 218-744-3880  or send an email to tuskan@q.com.  Cheers to a great holiday season!
