Thanksgiving Holiday Portraits

It’s time to give thanks for all we have and for a wonderful family and friends. We love and thank all our customers, past and present, for believing in us to capture your ever precious moments of your life. Katydid Photography has been serving you since 1984 and I personally have loved every minute of it! I feel very blessed to be able to do what I love and meet so many wonderful people throughout my life. Here are some tips for getting some great family shots over the holidays. Inside the home, use your flash to stop the kids in motion. During the day in the house if your subjects are still and you don’t want to use the harsh flash, try setting your ISO to a higher number such as ISO 1600 and do not use your flash. This is considered natural light exposure. Then check your shutter speed and make sure its fast enough to stop any motion in your photos. My suggestion is P, S, Tv, Av or A (try to stay off Auto unless you do not know anything else yet on your camera). When it comes to people, try to get as many triangles in your photo as possible. Try moving elbows and legs to create triangles. Arrange your family in a large triangle shape. Triangles keep the mind within your image so your composition is more pleasing. Start really looking and get in control of your photos. Good luck and enjoy your day!
