Five tips for photographing everyday life

1. Keep a camera out. The beauty of everyday life most often happens when we least expect it. Keep a camera out at all times and within arm’s reach. This also helps desensitize the family to having their photos taken. The time it takes to get the camera out of the camera bag, find the right lens, and find an SD card and charged battery eats up the patience your family had. But if the camera is there and ready to go, there’ll be less resistance to picture-taking.
 
2. Use the camera you have. Don’t have your DSLR nearby? Don’t worry. The iPhone and other smartphones take remarkably good photos. The best camera is the one you have with you.
 
3. Scope out the light. Be aware of the light in your home. Which rooms get the best light at different times of day? Set yourself up for success by making note of when great light is available
 
4. Use Continuous Shooting mode. When you’re trying to capture everyday moments without putting your family on guard, use this camera mode to quickly fire a few rapid shots in succession rather than taking one image at a time.
 
5.Choose Your Weekly Story. Consider upcoming events of the week (baseball game, ballet class, backyard movie night, or play date at the park).  Choose one event to work on capturing.  Begin to picture how the event will unfold and what the best photo ops could be.  Trying to capture ALL events will burn you out, but honing in on one becomes a fun, inspiring photo challenge.
