Oh I will be sad if you start taking photos much less often in 2011! You have to promise to still take and post your awesome stuff on a regular basis.

Such a fun shot! Are you going to do another 365 next year?

Ash said...

You are seriously amazing! This picture is awesome! Getting lighting like that with out blurring it is a hard hard thing to do. Have you just figured out lighting all on your own or did you take classes from somebody? I'm really really amazed at this photo! It's perfect!

Thanks everyone!

@Sarah, no I am not planning on doing a 365 next year, at least not starting Jan 1st. I need a break and some time to work out all the tweaks of starting my business!

@Ash, I learned all of lighting and exposure on my own. The 365 helped especially since I am only shooting in Manual mode.

For this shot I turned out all the lights except for the Christmas lights. I exposed for their face because I knew the star would light them up enough. My settings were 1/320 at f/1.4 ISO 1600. The only thing I did to the picture in lightroom was cool off the white balance and boost in contrast and vignette.

@Shauna, I promise to keep taking pictures :)
