Jumping on the Bandwagon..

...And trying this Christmas tree fad! I saw a link to Karli Bonnie's blog, The Bonnie 5, over at Ashley Sisk's blog Ramblings and Photos! I was immediatly curious on how it was done and once I set up the shot myself I was in awe. So many things you can do with a camera. Which you do like best?? I am having a hard time deciding.

This one, (1)

Or this one? (2)...

The only real difference is the zoom. As far as settings I had an ISO of 100, Shutter was SUPER low, like 1.30 (super slow!) so you will need a steady surface or tripod to rest your camera on! My Aperature was 5.6 and my 'zoom' was 28mm with my macro setting on. Hope this helps those of you who've yet to try it! It's a really fun project! (Btw the lens pictures is my 1.8 50mm!) Happy shooting!

Natalie....there is something about the first one that I like better. Good shot and I will have to try too. :)

I like them both - if you want your lens illuminated, use your speedlight. I found the lighting is a bit dark on the lens until I add the additional flash. But, with all that said, I really like the way this turned out.

Very interesting. I don't know that I would have thought of trying this. Very well done.

I can't tell that much of a difference, but I like them both. the second one may be a little darker and blurrier bokeh, right? I know I'm using some really fancy photography terms here.

Also, I'm hosting a giveaway today at livingwithtehlowrys.blogspot.com. You should check it out!

Very cool! I have been wanting to try this out since I saw it on those two blogs, too!

I like the first one because I like to be able to see more of the background.
