Default December Photography Theme - LIGHTS!!

Christmas is a time of lights. Whether on a tree or around a house, there should be no limit to subjects for this month. Get out there and take pictures!

Not the lights I expected, but I shot some photos last night of a band that I'm friends with and figured I'd share this since I came up with nothing better.

yeah so I failed at taking pictures by the end of December, but I wanted to take some shots of our ornaments for fun, so I did.

These are handheld:

Not lights in the Christmas tree sense, but they are light sources, and this was taken during the holidays...

Konstantinos, yes. That shot was around 10 seconds, but I cranked the ISO way up. Around 3200, if I remember correctly. I've shot other night sky photos at lower ISO, but it seems that once you go longer ~15 seconds, you start to get the movement of the stars.

Oh good call, I didn't even think about the stars moving across the sky.

According to your EXIF data:

I like that you had it all the way wide at 17mm, which is a fairly wide angle lens on a DX sensor. I should try this with my 50mm f/1.4 (albeit a little too long, and might be too fast for shooting landscapes). I kind of wish I had a faster wide angle, but my wide is only f/3.5 at its shortest (10mm). I'm going to try this out soon too (maybe tonight) and report back with findings

I have a 10-20 f3.6, and I've done some night shooting with that one slammed all the way to 10mm. I'd like at least a 2.8 10mm for starry landscapes. Go try yours tonight and share!
