Day 10: Don't Forget You {10 Days of Disney Vacation Photography Tips}

It's the last day of 10 Days of Disney Vacation Photography Tips. Today's tip is one I personally struggle with during every vacation - don't forget to be in the photos. You want to look back on the photos and remember that you were there too :) There are a few ways to do this. One is the ever popular selfie. I personally love to mix in a few. There is something fun about trying to get everyone in the frame and that alone will produce some natural smiles. The above photo was taken during our muster drill on the Fantasy. We all look extremely happy for a good reason! Here's another personal favorite. Totally didn't know Amanda was photobombing our selfie but love that my camera focused on her! 
Another way to be in the photo is to use a mirror, or in this case a very reflective window! 
Sometimes you just have to let go of the camera and have someone take the photo for you. Even PhotoPass photographers will use your camera or phone to take a photo so don't be afraid to ask! If you are a more advanced photographer and are using manual settings be sure and have your camera set up and ready to go when you hand it off to someone. 
Finally, don't forget about PhotoPass photographers. As the person who is always behind the camera I am a huge supporter of PhotoPass. My husband finds me annoying for wanting to stop at so many PhotoPass photographers but we have so few photos of the two of us and I want a lot of options! 
Here are some of my favorite PhotoPass photos. 

That ends my 10 Days of Disney Vacation Photography Tips! I hope you had fun and some of these tips will be helpful for you on your next Disney vacation. If you missed the rest of the series follow the links below.
