Photography Tip: Birthday Party Photo Tips

Wednesday, July 6th, 2005

1) Prepare For the Party

Abraham Lincoln once remarked that if you’re going to cut down a tree, spend 90% of your time sharpening the axe. Preparation makes any activity go better. And for birthday parties, you don’t want to have to wait until next year to make up for lack of preparation, do you?

So, what should you prepare for?

KNOW THE LOCATION. Whether the party takes place in a home, party room, or amusement park; realize that each location has its own photographic “blueprint.” Based on the location’s blueprint, prepare beforehand for the correct digital camera settings for white balance, metering mode, and exposure compensation.

2) Know Your Obstacles
