I prefer to get my daily exercise in the great outdoors and enjoy walking/hiking the trails in nearby local and state parks. Every once in a while during my hikes I come across a scene that makes me scratch my head and wonder, WTH! Today was one of those days. I’m glad I had my camera with the long zoom lens because these folks were way out in the field. Because of the props in the picture, I believe this was a professional photo shoot. I guess the photographer didn’t have a good woodland backdrop. Since this sight had me wondering whether I was hallucinating or not, I decided to call this the “Sanity Claus Scene.”

I've heard of photographers offering a "Natural Setting" for the annual family Christmas Photo. This is the first time I've seen "mall Santa" in the field though.
Thanks for sharing this and Happy Thanksgiving!

Just wondering if you shot this in Mo.? If both of those spruce trees were real, I doubt they'd still be there in this day and age. Happy Thanksgiving!


Glad there is Photography thread here!

Sorry, haven't been in this thread for a long time.
The photo was taken with a Nikon D700, Gitzo tripod, at F2.8 and approx. a 30 second exposure with ISO at 3200. Naturally all was manual.
I say approx. since I fire off maybe twenty photos of the same scene (gotta love digital)

Longer times will cause star trails.

Hardest is to find a place where the milky way is even visible in this day and age.

The only problem with shooting stars in long exposures? The earth is moving. I shot some pictures at Yellowstone. Not super long exposures, I thought the stars were a little blurred. Got them in photoshop, nope all the stars were still the earth was rotating. Stars looked like little lines.

Now this is funny... No idea this thread even existed... I just started getting "back into" photography. Picked up a new Canon SX530 just after the new year. Still learning it since I've been out of serious photography since high school so it seems.

I though of doing a Rebel but decided to stick with a more advanced point and shoot to keep it simple to make sure I do actually want to get back into this. I think it does pretty good.. Took some shots doing a 12 mile day hike along ridge line of Blue Mountain on the Appalachian Trail with my father.






This one makes me think of a model train display:

The 30 second range seems to keep the world from spinning... Unless you want the light trails. The only other thing I could think is your focus was set to infinity and in manual so an auto focus might have had an issue "locking on" to the stars.

Are there any other flickr members? I'm cdrdwd - https://www.flickr.com/photos/cdrdwd/collections

It's a great place to post photos and has groups on every subject imaginable...

My one hint for the day is a byproduct of dealing with camera snobs:
The camera you have out and ready for a photo is infinitely better than any other camera.
