The holidays offer a ton of prime photo-making opportunities, and many of those can be challenging. Shooting groups of people? Capturing Christmas morning? Getting details in low-light situations? Yep, I’ve been there, and I’m sure you have too.
Adobe Create contacted me and a few other photographers recently to ask for some holiday photo tips, which are now published in a new article at Adobe Create: How to Shoot Great Holiday Photos. My contributions include lighting for Christmas morning (a technique I learned from David Hobby’s Strobist blog), shooting outdoors in low light, and getting good (and spontaneous surprise) reactions in group shots.
Happy holiday shooting!
