Sure, anyone can take a photo of a still subject & make it look pretty good. But add in wiggle worm kids + late evening hours + inside & I become photo challenged! Almost everything will come out blurry if you don’t have the right settings on your camera.
With the holidays & almost everything happening in the evening hours or indoors, I’m bound & determined to capture good photos of these 3. Because there really should be no excuses when capturing memorable moments. Time moves too fast for excuses!
I played around this weekend with my settings on my camera in manual mode! Usually I resort to auto mode in the evening, but here’s what I was able to capture & trust me, they weren’t still for these photos at.all. I let them do whatever they wanted while I was playing around with the settings. Because we were here for awhile, mind you.
Nothing came out blurry with all their moving around. All candid, which I love & no stress in trying to get the perfect “posed” picture so that it wouldn’t look blurry. SCORE!
I used my 50 mm lens, ISO set @: 1600, f/1.8
I have a running list of photo ideas to do this month that I can’t wait to try out!
What’s your favorite holiday pictures to take? Do you take the same ones year after year as the kids grow?
I’m social as can be! Are you? Follow along if you like.
