Week 6: Backlighting Night Photo Challenge

Manger Scene, Backlit, Light of the World

Light of the World @2013 Capture Me Photography by Nicole, LLC


Week 6 – Backlighting Night would have been a little more fun if we didn’t get dumped on by 8 inches of snow and freezing temperatures this week.  I need procrastinating on these challenge pictures because the beginning of this week was in the 60’s… Arkansas weather is basically just as up and down as Michigan weather!


I do love how this picture turned out.  The glow coming through the manger scene is very inviting, which is the point.  Jesus, God’s only begotten Son, came down and was born in a lowly stable.  He was born to be our Savior and redeemer which is exactly what our Pastor preached this morning…. the Light born into darkness and so much more than just a baby.


For this shot : Canon 7D, 50mm 1.8 lens, f1.8, SS 1/640, ISO 640  (note: its one of the few times I have pulled out my 50mm lens this year! need to keep working on it!)


Apparently I’m getting into the Christmas spirit because all of the props I was thinking about using for this picture revolved around a Christmas theme.  Ok, now I must return to my normal broadcasting program – I had 2 super fun outdoor snowy sessions this weekend and I’m hoping they will make their way to this blog.


Until then, Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night! 🙂
