Christmas memories

I love exploring my photography skills by doing some fun, creative shots!  It’s a great way to get you out of your comfort zone and experiment with different lighting, lenses and camera settings.

This first shot was created using a Lens Baby with a heart lens cover (intentional blur).  Camera & settings used were Canon Mk III,  ISO 160, 0.4 sec., on a tripod.


For the next shot I used my husband’s 180mm lens.  I’m always intimidated when I use this lens and have only used a handful of times.  Overall thoughts…  love the compression of the image and the bokeh it creates!

Settings used: Canon Mk III, 180mm lens, 1/8 sec at f 4.5 ISO 640 on a tripod
