    When You Take A Long-Exposure Picture Of A Christmas Tree While Zooming Out

    As important as the holidays are for celebrating with friends and family, they’re also a good opportunity for people to show off their creativity. And if you’re not into holiday crafts, try your hand at creating some incredible long-exposure photographs!
    It all started when one user posted an interesting picture of his keyboard on Reddit. He took a long-exposure photograph of his illuminated keyboard and zoomed the picture out, creating the illusion that the letters had flown out of the board towards the viewer. Other users responded with the same method applied to their Christmas trees. It looks like the lights are exploding off of the tree!
    If you have an SLR camera, try to take some pictures like these. You will need to find an interesting light source, stabilize your camera, lower your ISO, and extend your exposure time.

    1. Use a tripod, or stabilize your camera on a flat surface.
    2. Set your ISO setting as low as it will go.
    3. Set your aperture to F10/F11.
    4. Set your exposure time to 2 or more seconds. Then, when you snap the long-exposure photograph, zoom your lens all the way in our out to stretch out the lights you see.
    You might be surprised at the results!
