Christmas Tree Photos

My friend Scrappy Sue posted a link to this tutorial, which I will have to try before we take down our Christmas tree.

It reminded me of  this photo I took on Christmas Day of my brother-in-law’s tree. I set my camera on the “bulb” setting and just held the shutter open while I wiggled the camera for about 4 seconds. I think this turned out pretty cool!IMGP7672

I tried it again, with just a smaller wiggle motion.IMGP7680

I also tried it last week when we went to a nearby indoor train display.IMGP7418

Here’s what it looked like when I was trying to hold steady (yes, I know it’s blurry anyway):IMGP7416 

I also want to try some of these suggestions from Photojojo, especially the idea of light painting with Christmas lights. So cool!
