It seems to be the fashion for some to decorate thier houses with lots of lights on the Christmas theme.


It does make an interesting challenge to photgraph as the differing realative intensity of the lights makes it hard to get the overall exposure right.

This was one second at f11

That's a nice shot. I haven't had a chance to try this yet but here's a link to some good info on shooting Christmas lights.

I thought so too. Most people (myself included) just assume lights arebest intotal darkness. Now if I can just convince my neighbors to turn on their lights earlier. :-)

Can I use that as an excuse to leave work a little early? It's been completely dark when we get home.

Thanks for posting the link to the article.

Here was my attempt last night at our tree lights now that we finally got the tree decorated. Am looking forward to reading the article about how best to shoot these. This was tough.

I thought my flash unit for my fairly new K100D was a great gift. But, my stepson just called us to tell us we'd be grandparents. This will be our first. This is turning out to be a fantastic Christmas!

Merry Christmas to everyone and the best for 2007.

What a wonderful Christmas present!

This isn't quite Christmas lights, but its the closest thing I've got at the moment - a rather large ornament (taken with the K100 because my hubby wanted me to wrap the K10)
