Day 4 - Christmas Photo Countdown

11:09 PM
Day 4-Christmas Candy
Photo Info:
50mm, ISO 400, f/2.0, 1/125th sec.

Photo Tip: How to get those cool blurry Christmas light circles...
1- Put your subject several feet in front of the lights. (the further away you are, the bigger your circles will appear.)
2- Get fairly close to your subject, usually right up to where your lens will be in focus. (this isn't necessary, I just think it looks better.)
3- Use a lens with a very low aperture like f/2.0.
4- Focus on your subject and shoot away!

For more of my Christmas candy photos along with their recipes, head on over to MADE to see my guest post today!
