Festive Photo Fun!
So, as it’s coming up to the Christmas holidays I though it was time to give you some inspiration for taking fun holiday snaps… Here are some of my favourite seasonal images – photos that remind me of my favourite family Christmas’s:
Christmas wouldn’t be the same if we weren’t surrounded by our loved ones, would it? Personally, I’m not too keen on staged group shots – I much prefer to take candid photos when people aren’t expecting it. The final images look much more natural and better capture what’s going on at the time…
I always like to take photos of some of the spectacular food and drink options we get to enjoy in the holidays… the kind of thing we don’t eat at any other time of the year, such as Christmas desserts and festive hot chocolates! My sister-in-law made the creation below several years ago and it was divine… definitely worthy of a photo!
I love buying festive cookies… and these ones were particularly cute (and tasty!).
I love my Christmas decorations… and I have literally thousands of them! I have a different theme for my tree each year – the one below was from my Disney themed Christmas last year.
I always like to try and photograph objects from different perspectives so went for a close-up of a piece of white tinsel on our Christmas tree… I love the shapes, texture and the way the light is reflecting off it. Try taking festive items from different angles and see what interesting images you can create…
The photo below was the beautiful view from our window when we went skiing in Italy a couple of years ago… waking up to this beautiful scene on Christmas Day was fantastic!
Below is a close-up winter scene… the holly in my garden with a covering of snow at Christmas time.
So those were a few of my ideas for fun holiday snaps to take… but there are so many other interesting festive shots you can take. How about reflections in a bauble, or Christmas lights reflected in water, or maybe a festive concert?
What sort of photos do you enjoy taking in the holidays? Let me know below…
Happy festive snapping!
