Mostly Wordless Wednesday. Oh Christmas Tree! Oh Christmas Tree!

I have come to the sad realization that I take sucky ass photos. I am obviously not a good photographer. My photos lack creativity, composition and style. My food pictures are the worst. I love cooking but after I take a photo I think who the hell would want to eat that crap although the food is ALWAYS tasty. So bear with my crappy pictures of our Christmas Tree. I have two from inside and the rest I went out in front of the house to show you how the tree would look to people who drive down the road. In real life it is actually quite beautiful but my pictures make it look like a stink ass tree. Oh well.

Umm, also notice the lack of presents under the tree. You know you could send us some if you really wanted. (hee hee)

  8. Love seeing your tree.
    I sometimes had a hard time with photos. To get really good ones try using the existing lighting, turn off the camera flash, and for the lite tree; try turning back lighting on and taking the photo. The tree light should come out. Hope that helps. sometime I take ten just to get a good one.:-)

  17. What a beautiful tree! I took a ton of photos of our tree before I was happy with it. I think everyone has a hard time taking photos of their tree.

  18. LOL, they're not so bad...but really, it is awfully hard to capture a Christmas tree well!

  19. I love the entry way to your house. Awww...love the house. We need to finish decorating our tree today. I've been cleaning house these past few days. Mother with OCD will be heading into town on Sunday. Yikes!

    Your Christmas tree is beautiful. I know what you mean about picture taking. I love snapshot style pics. Rodan is a news editor/photographer so he tries to get all fancy with each pic. Hell, I could die wasting my life standing in front of the camera as long as he preps for each shot.

    In NYC, he was upset that my pics didn't turn out the way he wanted. He'd take my pic and say, "This is how I want you to take my pic." Of course, my pics of him were never good enough. Funny thing...looking back at the pics he took of me, I'm blurry in almost all of the pics. His pics are nice! So see? Just take the damn pic...and enjoy the snapshot in your mind. Those are the best, don't ya think?

    Cheers & Love!

  20. Good tree pictures are hard to do. But yours looks beautiful!

  21. Your tree doesn't look bad at all! It's hard to get a good, true-to-life photo of a Christmas tree :) Take it with flash, and the lights don't show up. No flash, and it's blurry. Ours looks like crap this year, so I haven't even taken a photo!
