A few nights ago, I decided to go for a walk with (of course) my Samsung Galaxy Camera 2. Friends, I feel like I am on camera vacation right now just carrying around this very light camera. What a delight!
Anyways … my intention was to take images of Christmas lights. There is a setting on my camera for night, so that is what I had my camera set to. I found out that after you push the shutter, there is a one … two … three second wait until the photograph is processed, wherein the one who is taking the pictures must become the human tripod.
In other words, I could not move, breathe, blink while this photo was processing. I’ve had lots of practice at this taking my macro pictures, so no biggie. Yes, I could have put my camera on a tripod (yes it has the means to do so) but the whole point of camera vacation is not to lug around heavy equipment.
Now mind you I could have brought my tripod, and gotten clearer photos, but darn it! I will pack light for this vacation of mine. And so I did! GRIN!
The following photographs are taken within a one mile radius of our home. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did taking them!!! (The last photograph you will see a tree that is still leaning from the after affects of Winter Storm Knife.) I over edited on purpose so it is not your imagination that some of the lights seem extended, especially the blues! I think it is pretty what I did. (smile)
Enjoy the twinkles!
