I Take Bad Christmas Photos

5 years ago

It's true. I take really bad holiday photos. It doesn't matter whether I use my iPhone camera or any other type of camera, they're just bad. I know exactly why this is the case -- I do everything wrong.

I thought this year I might try a little harder to take some better shots but if that's going to happen, I'm going to need some help. I watched this The Girls with Glasses video for some ideas about how I might resolve some of the biggest problems I have.

I think I can manage at least a couple of these really basic ideas.

Before Christmas morning, I'm going to fiddle with the lighting in the family room. Lighting is one of our biggest problems, particularly when it comes to taking our (in)famous family stairs photos.

I'm also going to see if I can move some of the clutter (even if it's Christmas decoration clutter) from around the family room to prevent antlers from growing out of kids' heads.

Do you take good "in the moment" holiday photos? If you don't, these tips might help you. I hope they help me. I'll get back to you on 12/26.
