I found this great website with 8 tips on photographing Christmas morning. Be sure to check them out because they are great! I love all the tips but have a few more to add.
2. Keep your shutter speed at least at 1/125. Unless you are going for a shot with motion blur in it, you want to make sure your photo isn’t blurry.
3. Raise your ISO. The odds are your room may not have enough light that early in the morning (depending on what time your kids wake up). Don’t be afraid to raise it!
4. If you are photographing more then one person, check your aperture. Remember lower number less in focus and higher number more is in focus.
6. Be sure to stand by the tree when the kiddos come around the corner. You want to make sure you capture their faces when they see everything and not be walking behind them.
7. Don’t forget to re-read Creating a Photo Essay so your pictures can tell a story.
8. After you have captured all the photos you want, put your camera away and enjoy your family!
