This is my first DSLR camera that I received a month ago. I am very familiar with getting around the menus.
I have been on auto, auto no flash and Program mode, which was set by sales person at the camera shop.
I have a Nikon D3300 camera with a 18-55mm, 55-200mm & 35mm f/1.8g lens.
I would like to know if you have any suggested settings for picture shooting during the Christmas season.
I want to take a picture of family in front of a Christmas tree (natural light, with people not dark and tree lights beautiful).
Also, I will be going to a Christmas garden light display, which they have an indoor garden conservatory dressed up for Christmas and many outdoor trials of evening light displays.
Some pictures I'd like to get with my family in front of these displays (indoors and outdoors) without people being dark.
I can not use tripod in the evening as per Longwood Garden.
Here is a link to the Longwood Garden to give u an idea of some pictures I will be taking.http://longwoodgardens.org/gardens
Thank you for taking time to share your knowledge of taking great pictures!
