new christmas tree


we downsized from the christmas forest to a dinky tree.  complete with ten feet of LED lights.

shot in manual with the sb-600 to camera right with a 12″ snoot on it, 3 stops under exposed pointing at the star.
it was still underexposed, hence all the noise as i bumped it up a stop in lightroom.

adobe’s lightroom


rules.  speeds up the process of touching up images without being cumbersome like photoshop.  most shots just need some color and exposure correction.

students should pick it up with their student discounts.

thanks greg for turning me onto it.
