Our {glowing} Christmas Tree

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here!!!!

I played around with my cameras settings to get this glowing look!! I got the idea from this post. I did the same thing she did.....

I turned off all the lights in the house- except the tree, of course :-) I set my camera to manuel and set my ISO to the highest it will go....which is 1600 on my camera (I have a Nikon D50 & just used my 18-55mm lens). I also played around with my white balance and I ended up setting it to Incandescent. Focus in on your tree, then I turned my shutter speed down until I liked the way it looked and this is what I got. Straight out of the camera :-) Try it!!!!
