Photo Tips for Holiday Shooting

Here are some pointers for better indoor lighting:

  • Whenever possible, turn off your flash and turn on other lights in the room.

  • During the day, shoot near a window so you can capture the natural light. As long as you avoid harsh sunlight and shadows, natural light is ideal for photography because colours stay true and the lighting is soft.

  • The ISO number determines your camera's sensitivity to light. This means when the ISO is high, it "sees" more light than when it's low. Low-light situations can throw off the sensor. So, if you're in a lighting situation that would normally call for flash, increase the ISO on your camera to compensate for not using the flash. 
 Here are a few indoor scenes you might want to capture:

  • The dog with a collar of holiday lights.

  • A message or your family's name spelled out in lights on the floor or a kitchen table.

  • People lighting candles.

  • A reflection of lights in a window or mirror.
