Best Holiday Photos

It was actually a sad day because my friends were moving away. I wanted to take as many photos of them as I could, but I didn’t want to spend all of my time being the photographer.

We were at a farewell potluck for them, and I brought two pies. The kids were all playing soccer and the adults gathered around the table to visit. I moved to sit opposite of my friends and attached my new flexible legs tripod to the handle of the basket I brought the pies in.

Before I attached the camera, I shut off the flash. The room was well lit and I knew I wouldn’t need it. As we talked, joked and told stories for an hour, I occasionally snapped a series of pictures.

The camera was on automatic focus and I got several of them laughing with us. You could mount a small camera during Thanksgiving dinner and get several candid shots.

I like to use the x3 option for posed shots. It snaps 3 pictures with 10 seconds in between. We do one smiling, one crazy, and by the third shot we are usually laughing at each others antics!
