    Default Yet another for CC

    I'm obsessed with this Christmas tree and exposure on how to get it. I know it's a difficult shot to get right, but I'm still shooting it! My son is going to have the most photographed backside ever! He doesn't like to stand still and look at me! Soon I'll have to resort to bribery

    Cropped but no other PP.
    CC if you can and plays are welcome


    Exposure: 0.167 sec (1/6)
    Aperture: f/5.0
    Focal Length: 18 mm
    ISO Speed: 1600
    He appears to be admiring the tree, but really he's planning his attack on it!

    Unless you have a co-operating child chance are you won't get one where he's facing you haha (I have many pics of my kids butt). If you want his face then I'd suggest a a side shot.

    What is the look you want? I think its a cute shot. Did you take RAW? On this photo your son is too dark so I'd increase the brightness of him then a mask so you have a brighter ds without changing the overall mood of the shot

    No, not in RAW. I'm not doing any PP until I give the camera back. For now I just focusing on getting the best SOOC I can!

    not really going for any look! was just practicing and he happened to step in the shot of the tree so I snapped away!

    do you want the lights to look like starburst? You'll have to have a much lower ss that than, but if you want ds in then you'll have to mask him in b/c it will be way too low for him
    oh and I would recommend shooting RAW + jpg that way you can easily see what you have right now while you have the camera later you'll be able to do better editing when you're ready
    I still like it
