On Friday, Virginia and I went to the Winter Flower Show at Phipps Conservatory. Between us, we brought five kids. I love taking my camera to Phipps. Sometimes, I take a picture or two of the flowers. More often, I use the show as a background for our little flowers.
I love the possiblities when Christmas lights in the background. I was happy with how soft the lights on the tree behind my niece looked. For soft, round lights in the background, open the aperture wide. This photo was taken at f1.6.
