"I'll be home for Christmas"

Candles in the window always make me think of
"I'll be home for Christmas"

How is everyone coming along with Christmas decorating?
I am getting very frustrated trying to take some good pictures of my Christmas tree!
I am not using the flash,,,,but am not getting very good shots!  Ughhh
Any tips out there for me!?

Have a great week everyone!

So pretty. If you're having trouble photographing your Christmas tree, I don't even want to think how mine will turn out! LOL

I love your candles in the window. Sometimes the best time to take tree photos are about 4:30 or just after sunset when the sky is still blue (the famous blue hour) and you still have a bit of window light to lighten the room. Try it! I hope it works. Blessings, Pamela

I put my Christmas decorations up weekend before last & I'm not getting good shots, either... I wish I could give you some tips! I've been working on Christmas tree lights bokeh, but it's coming out too blurry! =)

I find it is due to all those lights coming at the camera from different angles..don't have a real solution. Your shots look lovely to me.

My decorating is coming along...slowly...painfully slow.

My camera, it's a beauty...
problem is I really don't know how
it use it so I point and click..
and hope.

Wish I had some great tip to pass along to you.

Wonderful blog you've created here,

My only hint: get an iPhone 4S...the camera is amazing :)

With a regular SLR you could set the focus on some neutral setting nearby without the Christmas lights and reframe the photo on the tree (with the shutter button still half depressed on focus lock).

Congratulations to your son, best wishes to his bride to be.
