« on: December 18, 2012, 12:42:06 PM »
As the Christmas/ Hanukkah / New Years holidays are upon us, I thought I'd start a thread for posting your holiday pics!

I hope everyone has a healthy & happy holiday and new year!

We've been doing family holiday cards with daughters for the last 18 years.  Frankly, we can't believe they still play along.

This year's card was this photo with the Tag Line:

Not exactly portrait but since I wound up in the shot I guess it works.  From last night.  Winter boredom resulted in getting the idea to drag a car battery and an inverter, with some christmas lights and well....

picturesbyme I think you need to count your blessings! Let us see:
  • You are on the beach and not shoveling snow off a driveway
  • You have a fabulous tree

Why are you cribbing? ;)

Oh your tree decoration really sucks ;)

Happy Holidays!

Thanks.  Well I'll be making an account of images today hopefully and try and explain in there.  Basically for the stars it was 20 second shots, F2.8 at 640 ISO with the Samyang 14 on a 5D II.  The camera never moves for the Christmas lights shot or the lantern shot.  The Christmas lights at that setting needed turned on for like 1 second tops then turned back off.  Easy enough to get the images for the star trail stack and then do one with the Christmas lights turned on then back off real fast.  Then without moving the camera still I'd do a bunch of lantern poses so I can just use which ever one of those later I want.  Those were with different settings.  I could leave the ISO at 640 and do those at like 2-4 seconds.  The only tricky part then is just stacking in the lantern frames as they are a lot darker and using "lighten" blend mode like the stars and christmas lights, well doesn't work.  So just used normal mode and had to mask it right.  Then adjust a curve on that and the other one so it balances better.
