It's that time of year — kids are anticipating the holidays. In the northern hemisphere, we will soon turn the corner of the winter solstice and the days will get longer. Notice the happiness of this mother and her son, and the way the blurry colored lights in the background reinforce the mood (see the Sharp or Fuzzy TipsFlick and Actual Info for more about depth of field).
Sure, bears hibernate during the winter, but just because it's cold and perhaps snowy (in the northern hemisphere) doesn't mean you should stay inside. Get out there and show us what the season is all about. Or stay in and show us images of snuggly warm. Remember if you are shooting a scene with a lot of snow (or a lot of fire), the in-camera meter can easily be fooled by all that bright! Be careful metering.
