Over the next few weeks, you may find yourself taking more photos than usual. Whether you’re hosting family for the holidays, enjoying lots of holiday meals, or attending cocktail parties, you’ve got a lot of memories to capture this season. Since most of us aren’t professional photographers, we thought it would be fun to ask our Photography Ambassador, Daniel Hedrick, to share his top tips for taking great photos this holiday season.

What are some ways Evernote can help you with your holiday photos?
- Use Evernote to snap photos of presents received so you remember who gave you what.
- Remember holiday cards by adding photos of them in Evernote.
- Create geo-tagged photo notes to keep track of the best holiday displays in town.
- Keep track of camera settings that worked best in your house by saving them in Evernote.
- Share a holiday notebook, and allow people to edit and add notes to it. When the holidays are over, you’ll have a collaborative record of the entire holiday, complete with photos and audio notes.
Come hang out with Daniel and our team, ask your pressing photography and Evernote questions
In addition to sharing his tips in a downloadable PDF that you’ll find in our public notebook, we invite you to join Daniel, and a few members of the Evernote team for a Google Hangout. We’ll be talking about awkward family photos (and how to avoid them), common photography mistakes, as well as ways that you can use Evernote to help you become a better photographer and memory keeper.
The Hangout will be happening on Thursday, December 6th at 3 pm PST.
If you’re unable to join us in person, don’t worry! The Hangout will be recorded and archived on YouTube (sign up through our Eventbrite page to receive the link after the fact).
