How to do great holiday photography

Holidays provide some of the best opportunities to get great photos, if you remember a few simple tips. Here’s professional photographer Nigel Barker’s advice for getting the most out of every photo op:

  • Start shooting early when everyone arrives. Typically, everyone looks their best at the beginning of an event.
  • Use available lighting and adjust camera settings accordingly. 
  • Capture candid moments, not just the dinner.
  • Shoot the entire group. Take wide-angle shots by adjusting camera setting. 
  • And, don't forget to use the camera timer to get yourself in some photos!
