Picture Playtime


I have joined some friends in a photography project by setting up picture-a-day blogs to run through this year, and mine is called
Picture My World. I decided it would be appropriate on Twelfth Night/Epiphany to take some pictures of the Christmas tree before we dismantle it, and took the opportunity to explore some of the functions of our camera at the same time. I set the ISO to 50 (so slow), disabled the flash, and set it to the fireworks mode. By moving the camera during the long exposure, I could get some interesting trail effects: the lights flash, hence the beaded appearance. Then I collaged four of the photos on Picasa and the above was the result. Great fun!
