Celebrations are often events that occur yearly, such as birthdays and anniversaries, along with other events like weddings, reunions and also public festivals, parades and carnivals. Many pictures are taken during these times and the challenge is to progress from taking snaps to creating really memorable images that will hold the attention of viewers that weren’t even present at the location. It is a process of being able to use your imagination, also trying to capture the essence of the moment utilising different camera angles and lens settings or a multiple exposure, something to make that image stand out.
You might be tasked with taking photographs at various times of the day, and need to allow for sunlight, low light, and utilising a flash in dark locations, or at night. Shooting with candlelight can give a photograph that soft glow.
