<h2>Capture Seasonal Festivals</h2><br><br>When I was growing up in Jersey City in the 1970s, my family went to a harvest festival on Staten Island each year, complete with hay rides and pumpkin carvings. If you take your family to an event of that sort, bring a camera. The sun will work against you, so try to put it behind you when you shoot. If you get a wide range of exposures, from bright light to deep shadow, you can tweak the photos afterward on your PC. Even if a photo looks hopelessly underexposed, you can use the tips in "[[xref:http://www.pcworld.com/article/207373/improve_your_exposure_in_tricky_lighting.html|Improve Your Exposure in Tricky Lighting|Improve Your Exposure in Tricky Lighting]]" to enhance the scene dramatically. <br><br><i>Photo courtesy Flickr user [[xref:http://www.flickr.com/photos/77682540@N00//|Ali Smiles :)|Ali Smiles :) on Flickr]].</i>
