Hi this is Jay P. Morgan. Today on The Slanted Lens we’re going to show you how to light glass and then photograph ice splashing into a cup of water. We’ll be using a laser trigger from MIOPS. Let’s hope nothing gets broken. There’s a trick to glass photography because it’s really more about the light you see through the glass, versus the light you put on it. Watch and let me know what you learned, and any tips you may have that I didn’t mention.

Keep those cameras rollin’ and keep on clickin’.

How to Photograph Christmas Lights – Photography Tutorial



Views:50915|Rating:4.75|View Time:4:32Minutes|Likes:412|Dislikes:22
**Go to to enter our December giveaway! Ends 12/31.**

Today on The Slanted Lens, we are getting into the holiday spirit and are headed out to take pictures of Christmas lights. There are only a couple basic things you need to understand so you can go out and take great photographs of Christmas lights this holiday season.

1. Time of Day: The best time to photograph outdoor Christmas lights is at dusk while there is still a little daylight. Just as the sun is going down and there is still ambient light they will look great. If you shoot in total dark, the lights are too stark and there is no detail in the house and it does not separate from the sky. To solve this we are going to use the ambient light at dusk as a fill light on the house. We will get a great fill on the house and great color and depth in the sky.

2. The sky can be the best part: Wait until the ambient light and the sky are dark enough to match your Christmas lights. There is a very short window when these two will be the same exposure. You can keep lengthening the shutter to bring the sky into a correct exposure but the lights will eventually become too bright.

3. Use a tripod: Don’t be crazy, use a tripod for crisp sharp images or lean on something like a car. Sometimes I will use the timer setting for real long exposure so I am not touching the camera as it exposes.

4. Don’t use an on camera flash: It wont do much of anything and is silly. Turn it off.

5. Camera settings are critical. I am using a Canon 5D Mark III.
White Balance – Set your white balance on Tungsten or Daylight. Tungsten makes the sky more blue and the lights more neutral or proper colored. Daylight makes the sky less blue and the lights warmer. Both can look great.
Shoot Raw – I shoot raw because if I want to change from Daylight to Tungsten I can do it as I process the images. It gives me both options.
ISO – Set the ISO at 620 or higher. I started at 620 ISO on the Mark III.
Aperture & Shutter Speed – I set my Aperture at 5.0 and my shutter speed at 1/8th. This is a good exposure on the lights but the ambient was way too bright. I will just keep shooting until the lights and the sky become the right exposure.

Eventually it will get too dark to get a good fill on the house. I hope you have a great holiday season and take some great photos. Our next lesson will be about combining strobes with great holiday bokeh.

Thanks for watching! Keep those cameras rollin’ and keep on clickin’.

From Jay P Morgan,

Today on the Slanted Lens we will discuss how to use umbrellas on set. Umbrellas are a great modifier and the one that most people start with. They’re inexpensive compared to soft boxes and octodomes making them very attractive. They collapse and fold away making them very simple to transport and carry with you. They are the first step in controlling light to achieve your photographic vision. We will discuss the materials the umbrellas are made of and how these materials affect the light. To test our umbrellas we will set up a target that will allow us to see how the light spreads. Then we will use the umbrellas to shape light on a person’s face.
