Day 7 - Christmas Photo Countdown
Day 7: The reason for the season
50mm, ISO 400, f/2.0, 1/40th
As you can see, my shutter speed is pretty darn low at 1/40th of a second. I normally like to try and keep my shutter speed up around 1/125th of a second to reduce camera shake but there are times like these that I break the rules. You see, I didn't want to increase my ISO because I really wanted that smooth look (as opposed to a more grainy look that accompanies a high ISO). So when I do break my rule and accepts a longer shutter speed I always make sure to hold REALLY STILL, to not breath and to squeeze the release button every so carefully in order to not move or shake the camera.
On a side note:
I watched a beautiful and short video called "A Gift to the World" depicting the events surrounding and the birth of Christ. It was done so well and was touching to watch. Click here to watch it. There are even more videos on this site of the life of Jesus Christ. I haven't watched any other yet but I'm excited to check them out! It's always nice to be reminded why I celebrate this time of year.
