Christmas Tree Photography

Have you ever wondered how to take a picture in front of your Christmas tree without a flash?


If you have a camera that will allow you to manually control your settings you will be able to take a photo just like this too!

Here are the settings to the pictures I took of my daughter in front of our tree.

I have a Nikon D7000 camera. 

ISO: 1600

Aperture: f/1.8

Shutter Speed: 1/30

TIP: Make sure there are no distractions in the picture like cords, vents, or windows. This allows for the focus to be on your subject in front of the tree.

If you would like more of a silhouette picture of your children in front of the tree, here are the settings.

First turn out all the lights in the house except for the tree. Make sure you are using a tripod or something to steady your camera. You will get a long click. This will allow you to have a beautiful tree in the picture.

ISO: 160

Aperture: f/1.4 or 1.8

Shutter Speed: 1/15

{And this one is my favorite…it looks like a painting. Cassie is so talented! Way to go Cassie!}
