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

If you have hopes of becoming a professional photographer, or even just of trying to get your work published in a public forum, you will need to create a photography portfolio. So what’s so important about a photography portfolio anyway?
There are many reasons why having a portfolio of your work available for others to view. If you are seeking employment as a photographer, then the need for a portfolio is obvious. If you are not seeking a photography job, there are still good reasons to have a portfolio. For one, you love photography and you take a lot a pride in your work. They are important to you. Most likely, some of them are very good. Why not create a portfolio that showcases your best work so you can show it to others (even if it’s just friends or family that comes over for a visit)?
