Is your tree up yet?

Christmas tree ornaments can make for fantastic photographs.  They don’t move…they smile you want them to.  The only downside is that sometimes the dog knocks a few down and they break. Take out your tripod and play around with your settings; get to know your camera.  The f-stops and the exposure levels can make for some interesting photos…and if that doesn’t do it for you, use your Raw settings and create a wonderful HDR to ensure that those Christmas lights don’t overpower your ornaments.

Happy holidays.  Click on the image for a larger photo:

Happy Holidays from 1985…


Into the flower

I took this photo with my first macro lens….had my tripod out and kept adjusting the aperature to get just the right photo.  The inside of this flower was simply beautiful and I wanted it just right.  Not sure I ever got there, but this was one of my favorites.  I really like that the flower fills the frame and then some.
