So, this year, the wife and I want to send out xmas cards with us in front of the tree. So, I have been doing a little testing. The look I am going for has the Christmas tree "glowing" for lack of a better word.
Here is my best result so far. Any suggestions? It was shot with a 350d on a tripod with the nifty fifty. Manual mode, 1.8 aperture, and .5 seconds shutter length. 430EX flash angled away and up in a large living room. I am not terribly happy with the bokeh. I do have a 70-200mm f/4L IS coming in the mail on Thursday. However, I am not sure how much further away I can get the tripod.
