Picture-Taking Tips

WGRZ Photojournalist Norm Fisher offers the following tips for taking an award-winning photo of your holiday lights display:

1.)     Don't hand-hold the camera. Use a tripod 
         or place the camera on a steady object while 
         exposing.

2.)     Use the automatic setting if you're using a 
         digital camera, or use incandescent or 
         tungsten setting if it's dark outside.

3.)     Shooting after sunset or dusk while there is 
         still skylight will help make the background 
         show up and the lights look nice and warm.

4.)    "Bracket" or shoot multiple exposures of the 
         same scene changing the camera settings to see
         which looks the best. Don't be afraid to 
         experiment!

5.)     Try using the flash and not using it on the 
         same shot to see what's better.
