Use Lower Apertures
This Christmas click some really amazing portraits with bokeh effect using the lower aperture, the lower the aperture is the more bokeh effect you will get so play around with the aperture setting and create some amazing pictures, If your lens is capable, try staying at f2.8 or below. And there is always a way to improve the final result in post production work with Photoshop and Lightroom, that’s what we are here for so shoot as many photos you want and we can help you with the post production work and you can enjoy the holidays with your loved one without having to worry about the work.

Stay Active and Ready For Great Reactions
Stay ready and actively anticipate smiles and laughs.  Keep your camera up as your family and friends open their gifts and snap away at the reactions. Some of your best shots from Christmas will be the non-posed, in-the-moment images.

Use Natural Light
If you want to create warm, natural and moody photos, make sure to turn off your flash light and use the ambient lights of Christmas to create this effect and try different angles to shoot and see what fits best for you and you can create some really nice reflection effect.

Use Christmas Props
For Christmas portraits, consider including fun Christmas props like Santa hats and cute holiday outfits. This will add a delight to the eyes and the image will be more interesting as compared to normal portraits.

Consider Creating a Collage
Rather than posting more individual photos, consider creating a collage. In our world of social media, it’s easier to Instagram, Facebook, and Tweet one picture that sums up the party than to clutter up newsfeeds and timelines with multiple images.

Conclusion
The most important rule for Christmas photos is to have fun. It’s a wonderful time to play with the bokeh of Christmas lights and utilize elaborate, festive sets. It’s also a great time to get meaningful family photos, as it seems harder and harder to get all of our loved ones in one place at one time.
