Holiday sparkles

I signed up for a photography workshop to practice capturing holiday decorations. Good! I can learn some new tips and techniques for taking pictures at night.

However, I felt out of my league when I showed up with my simple point-and-shoot while others were experimenting with shutter speeds, color settings, and focus.

First assignment - the giant Christmas tree inside the Galeries Lafayette.

Then, outdoors to check out the store windows. Little kids liked the toys in the Galeries Lafayette windows.

While the windows of the Printemps appealed to a more mature audience.

I have no cool special effects to show off - but I'm still happy with my pocket-sized Sony camera.

  1. Great photos! Looks like your camera is well up to the task for what you're trying to capture. The fur coat/baseball cap/sensible white sneaker combo in the 5th photo is pretty classic...
