At our morning’s worship time at Pleasant Street this morning I was able to capture a few of my favorite things; a Christmas Advent wreath with the candles all lit and a genuine barbershop quartet singing Christmas carols. The church was beautifully decorated for the holiday and following Christmas tradition we’re in Advent, the four weeks before Christmas. Each week we’ve been lighting another candle. Our final service will be Christmas Eve at 5 p.m.. I look forward to it.
I switched from my 27mm lens to my 18-55mm lens this week because the 18-55mm has O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization) that allows me to retain my 6400 ISO while remaining stable at 1/20″, something the 27mm doesn’t have. It’s important with a group shot like the quartet because I have to keep my aperture higher to retain sharpness at different planes of focus.
