Holiday Photo Tip No. 3: Move in closer to reduce red-eye

Here’s a a third holiday photo tip. Move closer to your subject instead of standing 15 feet away. Otherwise, you risk capturing too much background. Gettin closer also reduces the chance of red-eye. Some cameras have a red-eye reduction feature, which fires a strobe just before the shutter is released. The strobe forces the subject’s pupils to shrink, which, in turn, lessens the likelihood of reflection. Red-eye is a common culprit in holiday photographs.
