When Santa came to Blarney

Santa came to Blarney on Sunday night for the switching on of the Christmas lights in the village and I was there to take a few photos. As also seen on the Muskerry News page.

Some dragging of the shutter may be involved. I love that effect!

* Dragging the shutter means to use a long shutter speed and a flash. The long exposure means you get more light from the dark background and lights. The flash illuminates the foreground. I usually set the exposure to -1 or -2 at f/8 so the exposure wasn’t too long.

A Very Keane Santa

Santa gets everywhere these days, especially wherever there’s a buck to be made!
