How to take abnormal Christmas tree photos.

This is Audrey from The Daily Wyatt. I want to talk to you about how fun it is to take abnormal photos of your Christmas tree.

I have a very small ghetto tree that I have had since I was 18 when I randomly moved out on my own. It was the first tree I ever bought and it has seen better days.

So this year as we set it up (yes before Thanksgiving. I know I know.) I noticed all the icky bare spots, how it tilted and it was just ugly. So when it came to taking the normal pictures of it I wanted to be a little more artistic with it. Give it more life, so I decided to concentrate on just the lights.


So I put my camera settings on 0.8 f 5.6 ISO 200 no tripod. As a clicked the shutter instead of holding my camera still I turned it in a circular motion while pointing it towards the tree which made the lights turn into little circles.

It was so simple and the only edits I did was boost the colors to make them a little brighter.
So when your taking pictures of you tree this year try and do something out of the normal. Who knows you might get something amazing.
