Photograph Those Holiday Feasts!

POSTED BY: BRIDGET

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching! As you get those recipes ready, be sure to have your camera standing by as well. A dinner party always happens way too quickly, especially if you’re the host(ess), so get a few of those moments on film! A few of my favorite, self-imposed rules are listed below. These should leave you with at least a few good photos and more importantly, you’ll (hopefully) enjoy yourself as well.    


1) Use natural and ambient light (I prefer to avoid the flash in almost all situations). I love this incredible centerpiece photo via The Kitchn and the story about this gathering is full of other great party tips.


2) Handwritten menus and/or place cards are a nice touch. Photograph those details. This picture is from a wedding. It's clean & simple and so perfect for any autumn meal.


3) Candid shots like this one feel natural, and after a few glasses of wine, your guests probably won't mind being in a picture or two. This also makes good use of he ambient light.

4) Overhead pictures of a table always look great, even if the food is half-eaten. If a hand makes it in to the shot, even better! Shoot a 'toast' from that angle as well. Cheers!
