It’s the most wonderful time of the year to keep your camera handy. Family and friends are gathered together, the kids are happy, and there's plenty of holiday cheer. It’s the perfect time to say cheese.
* While the gang’s all here, put your camera on a tripod and capture a family photo. Do a formal one, then lighten up and pull some silly faces.
* Pictures of children on Christmas morning are always magical, rumpled PJs and all. Be sure to get well–lit close–ups as the wrapping paper comes off.
* The holidays mean delicious dishes. Turn pictures of a golden–brown turkey or smiling gingerbread men into a book of favorite recipes.
