Christmas Card Photo Ideas: setting up your camera

To ensure sharp images using a tripod with your camera and use a remote release to trip the shutter.

If you don’t have one, use your camera’s self-timer function so that the shutter is triggered after any wobble created by you touching the camera has stopped.

If you decide to go the whole hog and use mirror lock-up, the first press of the shutter release lifts the shutter while the second (made after any vibrations have stopped) trips the shutter.
