All right everybody Jeffry Scales here to share some tips for taking a photo when thanksgiving. So I hope everyone has a wonderful time with their families and I hope you all slowly slide into a food coma of some sort and eat a lot of good food and also take good pictures of your family.

Because I notice every year that a lot of people struggle with the same thing, and that is how do we get good family photos at Thanksgiving or even Christmas in you know all these holiday get-togethers. Before we go through the tips lets discussing first.

The Meaning of Thanksgiving

All over the world begins with knowing more and more Thanksgiving. However, it is not celebrated in Europe. We know it from the many American (Christmas) films. But what is the meaning of Thanksgiving now anyway? Thanksgiving is a feast day celebrated in the United States and Canada.

At the first, the feast day will be on the 4th Thursday of November, at the second on the second Monday of October. In general, Thanksgiving has the meaning to thank for the harvest of the past year.

That is why other countries in the world also know similar feasts, harvest festivals. The gratitude for the food, just before the winter begins, is after all for centuries an essential ritual of mankind — especially of course when food supplies could only count on the fields of the village or the town.

The weather conditions had then still a much more significant role. It is only since globalization with its import and export of products all over the world that we have forgotten this ritual. But earlier a failed harvest meant tough times for a peasant family or village.

Thanksgiving gives people the opportunity to stop a little and remember to be thankful and appreciate what they have. In our hectic everyday life, it may be that

Thanksgiving seems to be becoming more and more popular, not only in the United States but also elsewhere in the world. We need to meet, socialize and enjoy each other’s company. We need togetherness. We also benefit from looking inward, and not just focusing on what we lack.

I typically don’t take all my you know my big camera stuff to the family events unless a lot of people ask me too sometimes, but I’m not that guy. But I do like pictures. So I’d make this video because I see over and over the same mistake being made by a lot of people and all these get-togethers. So I thought I would kind of give you guys a couple of alternatives on how you can use your current camera for improving these Thanksgiving or Christmas or holiday photos.

Tips How To Take Good Family Photos

1) Plan the family photo

It’s not always easy to get all the family members on a picture. A determining factor is planning. Make sure to preview what kind of photo you want to create and try to announce it far in advance so that everyone is present and prepared. Choose a date that everyone can be present to capture on the sensitive plate.

2) Choose a good location

Make sure there is enough space to get all attendees in the picture. As a photographer, you also have to pay attention to the surroundings and make sure that there are no uninvited guests on the photo or that nothing silly happened in the background of the photograph.

3) Consider the light

Light is a significant factor. The most beautiful pictures are made with the correct alignment of the light. Do not take photos against the sun, but with the sunlight.

4) Long rear, small front

You can’t stress it enough, if you’re making a classic group photo, make sure the longest people are at the back, so no one has to stand on his or her toes and come out just above a shoulder.

5) 1, 2, 3, CHEESEEE!!

Counting helps. It’s not fun if you’re the only one in the picture with your eyes closed. So Help the family with counting and speaking when the photo is taken. This can be at the Tel of 3 or at “Cheese!” On the other hand, you can also surprise them with some spontaneous pictures, without noticing that they also take pictures before and after the photo moment (for example on the Tel of 1 or 4).
