Christmas is such a great time for taking pictures! Here are a few ideas that you might like to try to create some great photos for Christmas.
1) Take pictures with a ball ornament. This is a pretty fun idea. You take a picture of a glass ball ornament and you can see the scene in the reflection. You can have a lot of fun with this and be creative as you want.
2) Take a Christmas tree bokeh shot. Bokeh is basically the light in the out of focus area of a photograph. To achieve this look you will want to use a low f-stop such as f1.8 or f2.5. I usually try to do it with the lowest stop on my lens. Even if you have a point and shoot you might be able to do this. Some point and shoots do have a way to change the settings. Focus on your subject and make sure the Christmas tree lights are in the background.
3) Black and white Christmas pictures. I love to make some of my pictures from Christmas morning black and white. It makes your pictures appear a little more classic and magical.
I am always taking pictures, especially when my husband is gone. I want to make sure he doesn’t miss anything. So this Christmas morning, don’t forget your camera and capture some great memories
