Given here are some tips on how one can make most of such occasions to get some magical moments clicked with the digital camera:

• When taking family pictures around the table, while they are enjoying their meal, don’t shoot through a maze of bottles and glasses. Stand on a small stool for an elevated vantage shot.
• Kneel down in the subjects are sitting; this brings the camera lens down to the eye level so you can see their eyes.
• Avoid making the flash glint off spectacle lenses. If need be, switch off your flash and use the room lights or sunshine outdoors to illuminate the subjects.
• Don’t take pictures of the people while they are eating. Bulging cheeks and crumbs on the lips are not very flattering.
• For pictures of a group raising their glasses in celebration, see that the group is comfortably placed in the frame.
• Stand back and switch to panoramic or wide-angle mode.
• Make sure to get the maximum from the flash.
