Another good type of Thanksgiving photograph to make is a formal group portrait of all the people you have invited to share the celebration with you. You might want to consider getting out the tripod and finding a vantage point high enough up so that you can capture all the family members as well as the table laden with food. Remember to check your viewfinder to make sure that there is nothing distracting, and figure out a good way to make them laugh before you snap the shutter.
Thanksgiving is also a good time to take candid photographs, so don't put away your camera after the meal. This might be a great time to take pictures of the kids running around the living room or the family enjoying the post-dinner football game.
Finally, if you happen to live in a community that offers a good Thanksgiving Day parade, you might want to forego the football game and take your camera out to see it. You'll have a good time, and you might even burn off a few of those turkey calories.
