My Best Daily Shots
12/16/14 - Johnny Light Tree
It all started when I read this cool blog post filled with fun holiday photo ideas. I just had to try to create my own version of kid light trees. Joey and Johnny were both eager to help. I dug out a strand of white on white and color on white Christmas lights. A 50 light strand will do. I put my camera on my tripod and set up a manual exposure for various times between 3 and 10 seconds. I tried shots with the background Christmas tree on and off. The boys did a great job of holding still. I used the self timer and then started spinning the lights around the boys in a nice circular pattern. I did my best to keep me and the extra light string out of the shot. The boys were super impressed seeing themselves surrounded by a light tree. Give it a try for yourself. It's great family fun.
