Christmas is a very exciting event for all of us. It’s that time of the year where we enjoy the most with our loved ones, let it be our other halves, friends, family, or pets.
The days of winter break are one of the most beautiful times of the whole year. It’s least bothering to the people if you are a budding or a professional landscape photographer or a portraiture artist. As long as you can create something unique and of your own, you will find something inspiring to capture and document them.
It’s the time where we enjoy the last week very much, or at least we try our best to do that. So who would not want to click amazing pictures to capture their moments and preserve them to look at afterward? So if you are clicking, then why not stay up with the trend and create some amazing portraits. Let your creativity come out fully and show your peers your amazing ability to start from zero.
If you have not checked yet, then let me tell you that people have already come up with their own trends on social media platforms like Instagram, Snapchat, Pinterest, and etc. if you are in doubt about what can be new, because pretty much every style of photography has been used once. But there is no hard and fast rule that trends can’t come back. You make your own trends, and people who can match the vibe will simply follow it.
This Christmas, you must be thinking about what kind of picture you should click. You must be seeing your friends, family members, and others getting connected amazingly, and you might want to experience the same zeal; then I’d suggest to stick around with us and read this article till the end.
There is not much to invest if you are planning for your pictures this Christmas because I’ll let you know some of the very easy to pick ideas with which you can accessorize your photographs. Let’s start with the most known ones :
USING CHRISTMAS PROPS
It really looks very cute when we click pictures with cute Christmas props. The color palette becomes all white and red, and what could look better than these colors in your Christmas pictures. You can use all those glitter balls that you hang on your tree in front of your face and pose with a smile. Another alternative can be the gold and silver stars, and they look pretty cute too. You can utilize those little bells as well by holding them too close to the camera to create that split focus effect. You can try creating those gift-opening moments. Where you will fake(or not) a candid and the photographer will capture it. You can use the Santa caps or the Santa himself( if you can find them! ). Oh! How can I forget about Christmas trees? Christmas trees with candies will always make your photos look even more desirable. It honestly doesn’t matter if it looks cliché because what matters the most is what you want to do in this holiday season.
TRY OUT COZY WINTER FILTERS
With all the igniting colorful lights and beautiful colors of the festive season up till New Years’ Day, sometimes what we all want is just some calmness. In photos, soft grey, beige, off-white, and similar tones are dominant. Even if you didn’t take a photograph with this in mind, try out some grey-toned filters to help you out. The public attention is now less on the eye-catching lights and more on the contents of your photo.
USING BOKEH EFFECT
Have you ever tried it in your photos to create a bokeh effect? Trust me, bokeh effects add that extra glam to your photos and make them look even prettier. And what’s best than using LED fairy lights to create that cozy environment. It’s straightforward to work with bokeh effects as it takes just a moment of expertise after a handful of practice. There are many photographers who like the bokeh effect due to its visually pleasant qualities. Its magic isn’t about providing a blurry background that will be eye candy and draw attention to the subject. Still, it also makes your photographs look incredibly dreamy and make your images look very eye-catchy and even out of this world sometimes.
Bokeh is just a collective ball of round lights you see in your backdrops. You can recreate this look with the correct aperture and use it in other photos. Photos of bokeh are absolutely perfect for adding glam to your normal photos. There’s no barrier in what you can do with these handy resources. They even create beautiful minimalistic cards in this christmas.
In AV Mode, you don’t have to guess your exposure and lose precious time fumbling with buttons. Once you set your aperture correctly, you just have to worry about pressing the shutter. However, your camera may not always get the exposure right, especially in tricky lighting situations. Sometimes, your camera gets confused and chooses the wrong exposure setting, so feel free to use your exposure compensation button (marked with the -/+ symbol on your camera) to adjust how light or dark your image is.
TAKING CHRISTMAS SELF PORTRAITS
when you’re capturing the world surrolunding you. It’s only fair if you celebrate yourself at the end of the year by treating yourself with some self portraits. Self-portraiture is a fantastic way to reduce a stress and find inspiration in the most simple things. Don’t stress out on the fact that dressing up like Santa is the only way to take creative pictures in christmas. You don’t need to get freezed in the outdoors to take an interesting picture.
You can wear your favorite cozy and soft sweater and pose in a cute way beside your Christmas tree or a loved person. You can hie somebody to capture your candid moments but you can experiment with bringing out yourself in different ways. You can use Christmas lights to give a festive atmosphere to your self-portraiture. Try creating more abstract scenes too.
Who doesn’t like to dress up on such a lovely occasion? The best way to enjoy your moments is by making plans of chilling at your home. Even if your friend can’t make it, take it with you. Execute a self-portrait shoot with a Christmas-based theme, wearing all glitters and shimmers, and accessorize your photos just how you accessorize yourself.
FAKE A SNOW SCENE THIS CHRISTMAS
We knowthat we can’t expect snow from everywhere, and hence, to our rescue, there are many photo editing apps that can create such dreamy and cool Christmas snow effect o your pictures, and if you can adjust the settings properly, they can look super real without anybody knowing!
The the winter break is here.
Some of us enjoy the extreme coldness of the snowfall and this chilly weather for several months every year. But what about others? They have to go on with whatever they’ve got. So if by chance you are the one to join the club of the second category, then obviously there is no other choice left for you, except editing your pictures on photoshop and pasting these beautiful snowy effects.
