  • Neighbourhood Christmas Lights

    I was told by the grand kids that I had to get shots of the Christmas lights around the corner so begrudgingly I got out the camera and did the deed.

    Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

ID:	496333 Thanks A&B. The whole street is lit up and it looks amazing. This was last year.

        Good work again Isac and you have managed to get some light in the sky in most.

        I have done these in previous years and although we had a walk around looking at some I couldn't get enthusiastic enough to take the camera.

        I always wonder how much money these people spend. I suspect it can be well over $10,000 in some cases. I suppose the cost would often be spread over a number of years.

          Thanks Alan. This street nearby just keep adding to their displays every year and it would cost a bomb I reckon. I just park at one end of the street and have the camera on the tripod - stopping at each house. I have the camera set to Manual, ISO 400/640, f:8/f:9, Stabilisation OFF. Then I use the LCD screen to adjust the shutter speed for exposure, 2 second timer and it's done. It works well for me. Sometimes I'll take a couple of shots darker to get good exposure on the super bright lights and then blend in post.
