    Family portrait photography mistake 10: Who took the photo?

    Best camera settings for shooting family portraits at home

    One of the problems of being the photographer of the family is that you can often be excluded from photographs.

    But don’t take this lying down and get yourself in on the action. Put you camera on a tripod, make sure a space reserved for you in the scene and set your camera to self timer mode (ideally the 10 second option), then dash into the frame as soon as you have pressed the shutter release.

    You may even find that this approach creates a little excitement and get better shots then when you stand by the tripod.

    A more high-tech approach is to use a wireless remote to enable you to trigger the camera once you are nicely settled in the frame.

    In some cases you can even see the scene on your smartphone and use that to fire the shutter. It makes life easier, but a self-timer is often more fun.
