The Holidays are upon us again and the opportunities for photographers abound. Documenting the season can give a photographer many ways to expand their photographic skills, and capture new and different subjects. There are always the family photo's by the fireplace, that we do year after year, but there are also many ways to make unique and different photographic compositions. How about taking photo's of your decorations with a different lens and making them look like a snow globe? How about taking that lens to a location you are visiting and doing some different photo's for the location, then posting them on social media and tagging the location to give them some photo's they can use to promote their event? How about trying to knock a couple of key bucket list items off your list by visiting local attractions and documenting them? How about trying to capture a family member or friend's pet with a holiday theme? These are just some ideas for making this Holiday season a photographic one.
Here's wishing you and yours a wonderful Holiday, however you celebrate it, and a Happy Photographic New Year.
