I received the above this morning about trying to get good pictures of decorated and lit Christmas trees. Though it is for Olympus camera owners the tips in general, the aperture setting, ISO, ‘hand-held mode‘ etc., should be applicable to most other cameras. So I thought I would share them with you. Taking decent pictures of Christmas trees can be a challenge. One KEY item that Jamie MacDonald, the author of the Olympus post, does not discuss is White Balance (WB). I have found that getting the right WB (of course) can make a huge difference.
We have, as has been the case for the last 8 years, two decorated Christmas trees. I haven’t really spent any time trying to take any serious shots of them. Maybe, inspired by this post, I will do that tonight.
A few random shots of the 2 Christmas trees I have snapped, with my trusty Panasonic Lumix FZ1000, over the last few days. I really didn’t spend anytime messing with the settings. Picture where you can see a paper butterfly … that is a REFLECTION of the tree in a window, the butterfly stuck to the window.
