- No. 01 Set your white balance.
- No. 02 Keep your shutter speed at least at 1/125.Unless you are going for a shot with motion blur in it, you want to make sure your photo isn’t blurry.
- The odds are your room may not have enough light that early in the morning (depending on what time your kids wake up). Don’t be afraid to raise it!
- If you are photographing more than one person, check your aperture.Remember lower number less in focus and higher number more is in focus.
- No. 05 Charge your battery the night before!
- No. 06 Be sure to stand by the tree when the kiddos come around the corner.You want to make sure you capture their faces when they see everything and not be walking behind them.
- It’s important to use your images to tell a story. Isn’t that why we take these images? To tell the story of Christmas morning.
- No. 08 After you have captured all the photos you want, put your camera away and enjoy your family!Studies show that you remember more of an event when not viewed through a viewfinder. Take the pictures you need to remember the moment. Then put your camera down, sit back and soak in all the joy around you.
