How to avoid taking lousy iPhone holiday photos

Christopher Breen | Dec. 23, 2014
There's an old wheeze that's routinely bandied about in regard to digital photography: "The best camera is the one you have with you." Ask a qualified photographer about the value of this advice, however, and you might get a less-than-enthusiastic reply along the lines of "Why represent a great moment (and potentially great memory) with a terrible image?"

Maintain perspective

Finally, it's worth remembering that you want to capture pleasant memories. And that's unlikely to happen if you leap out from around every corner and shove a camera (iPhone or otherwise) in your mother's face or prevent the kids from opening the next gift because you haven't finished capturing their forced smile while posing with the last one. In short: Real memories are better than the ones you attempt to manufacture. Use your camera when appropriate and stay out of the way of the real joy of the season.
