The three of us ended Sunday night with Starbucks and sparkly lights. It was really fun but we definitely missed our college girl being with us.
In order to get a sharp shot, I rolled the window down and balanced the camera on the window frame. I set the iso at 1000, the aperture at f/5.6, and the shutter speed ranged from 1/8 to 1/25. The traffic gets pretty heavy in these neighborhoods during Christmas, and so every year I’ve been too scared to get out of the car and set up a tripod. (I get anxious when it comes to taking pictures with lots of people around–irrational I know…but real) I’ve pondered going really late at night to avoid the traffic, but then I fear the residents would think I’m some sort of creepy peeping Tammy if they saw me out on their sidewalk at midnight!
