Gingerbread | by John-Morgan
Back to photostream


A gingerbread house constructed by my wife and son. Decorations include M&Ms, gumdrops, mashmallow bears, and, oddly enough, Sun Chips.


Details: Tripod, on-camera 280 series Speedlite with diffuser, minimal post-processing in Picasa. The difficulty in this shot is getting the focus right. In the low light environment of the living room after sunset, there's not much light to work with. Used manual focus to try to hit that right after numerous AF failures. The exposures requires that you nail the house correctly while not screwing up the bokeh from the tree. Shot in "P" mode--a rare thing for me, but usual successful with flash.
