This is not a technical tip.
Its more of a reminder. Those of you who have lost parents know how important this is. GET IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA. I am so glad your child is in EVERY shot you take Christmas day. Or even the stack of presents by the tree. But where are you? What is your Christmas story? Hand the camera to someone else. I am just as guilty of NOT doing this as everyone else. And please have a wonderful, fun filled Christmas!
