25 Days of Christmas

Christmas Picture Cliche #1- Twinkling Lights
It’s a little cliche but I had to get a picture infront of some out of focus lights.

My little set up was super simple.  I put a black curtain over a clothes rack in the corner of the sun room so no light was hitting it.  I taped my Christmas lights to the curtain- all jumbled up since I knew the wire wouldn’t get seen.  I set my couch cushion on the floor infront of it with the window right beside it to give the boys a little side lighting.  Since I was using my 135mm, I scooted back as far as I could- literally under my desk.  I set my aperture to wide open (f/2), metered off the bright side of their face, and took the picture.  Being so close to them and using the long focal length really helped to blur the background.
