There are some great Christmas lights in our subdivision this year. We thought they would make a great backdrop for our family self portrait. It is time to make it happen. Let’s see… time for a list of equipment to take…
- Self timer
- f2.8 lens
- Tripod for camera
- Tripod for flash
We walked down the road to “the spot,” setup the tripod, camera and the subject (my wife) and took some test shots getting the background exposure just like I wanted. Then added the flash. Once those details were out of the way, I set the self timer on the camera to capture an image every 7 seconds. Then I jumped into the frame and we did various poses. This is the one we like the best.
