I find I remember things better if I make preparations. Here are a few camera ready things to do ahead:
- Change or charge the batteries.
- Clean the lens
- Check the settings - Oh, how I get aggravated when I've taken a bunch of people shots only to realize I still had the thing set on 'landscape.'
- Think about what photos you want to capture and start early.
- Ask someone to take some pictures for you so YOU will also be in the pictures. Besides two heads remembering to use the camera are better than one.
Capture the rituals as well as the posed shots.
What is it that makes the holiday memorable for you?
In doing Project 365 this year, I've really noticed how these little everyday things I've captured bring back memories when I look at the photo months later.
Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving for those in the US! Happy on-line shopping to all!
