A little Christmas Cheer

I have been obsessed this holiday season to get good pictures of my tree. I found many great tutorials online but decided to go with the one from Kevin and Amanda. They not only showed a great way to get my lights to pop, but they added a fun little addition I had to try. She used an 85mm 1.8, but you could easily use a 50mm 1.8, or 35mm 1.8. For my photos I used my 50mm 1.8 lens.


Nikon 50mm 1.8
Manual Mode
f/1.8
1/30 sec
3200 ISO


Nikon 50mm 1.8
f/1.8
1/30 sec
3200 ISO

For this shot I used my manual focus and simply turned it until it was out of focus. You will see the light go from small to big circles.

This is where I used the tutorial from Kevin and Amanda. It also made it seem like I used a fish eye lens.
