Top tips for Christmas photography

Instead of taking the same photos you take every year, why not get creative with your Christmas photography this festive season? Follow these three top tips and this year’s Christmas themed photo album will be your best yet.

Try bokeh photography

Fairy lights, tinsel and candles mean that Christmas is the perfect time to try bokeh photography, and it’s easy to master this technique to create beautifully blurred photos which sparkle with hazy light for that warm festive feeling.

Shoot in continuous mode

Switching your camera to continuous mode is perfect for capturing Christmas morning. From finding the gift under the tree, to peeling back the paper and revealing what’s inside, keep snapping to capture the excitement of opening presents.

Focus on the details

Make your subjects stand out by blurring the background of your photograph slightly. Use portrait mode on your camera, or choose the largest possible aperture setting whilst keeping everyone in focus. Now the happy faces of your family will be centre stage!

Capture your festive party moments

If you’re throwing a party to see out the old year and welcome in the new, why not set up your own DIY photo booth? Not only will a homemade photo booth make any New Year’s Eve party more fun, and give you plenty of photos to remember the night by, but it can also be made for next to nothing.

All you need to do is set up a camera and tripod in an empty room or corner, add a backdrop (something silver and sparkly works well for a New Year theme), and provide a box of props for your guests to pose with. By midnight you’ll have enough fun and festive snaps to fill a whole Christmas photo book, let alone just one page!

How to take a great group photo

Christmas is the perfect time to capture a family portrait or pose with your friends in all your finery. Follow our top tips and you too can take great group photos.

Think about location

Whether in front of the fireplace, beside the Christmas tree, or outside in the wintry landscape, choose the setting for your photograph carefully. If you want to enjoy your photo throughout the year, it’s better to opt for a neutral, non-festive backdrop.

Relax and have fun

Relaxed, informal photographs are a much better reflection of your personality and family, so forget formal poses and encourage everyone to have fun. These natural, candid shots are the perfect way to capture the joy of Christmas.

Blur the background

Make your subjects stand out by blurring the background of your photograph slightly. Use portrait mode on your camera, or choose the largest possible aperture setting whilst keeping everyone in focus. Now the happy faces of your family will be centre stage!
