you may probably ask what is Bokeh in photography terms. It is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in out-of-focus parts of an image. Therefore, you can benefit from this tool. In general, for taking advantage of bokeh in photos, there should be a clear distinction between the foreground subject in an image and the background. Compare to a good bokeh, bad bokeh is when both foreground and background are blurred and out of focus.

Using Flash on some occasions is good but more often than not it’s not mandatory for nice photos. you can create a warm atmosphere in your pictures with the natural light of the Christmas tree or even the fireplace.

5. Christmas costume!

Try different Christmas costumes like Santa hats, funny holiday outfits, and different masks! use the LED fairy lights in your poses and make some unique pictures.

6. ISO + Quality

in some dark areas with low light, you are allowed to increase the ISO but don’t forget the more you increase the ISO the less quality you will have. Start taking photos with ISO 400 and then if you are not satisfied, increase it step by step.
