Playing with shutter speed

Taking a picture of your christmas tree - its night time and you want a lovely picture without the dreaded glare of the flash.

1. The first picture is taken on AUTO with FLASH. Its so garish.... <<<<<<<<

2. The second picture is taken on Manual, APP 5.6, 1.5" shutterspeed with FLASH. Its still garish and a little yellow. >>>>>>

3. 3rd pic is getting there. Set on Manual, APP 5.6, 1.5" shutter speed without flash. <<<<<<

4. 4th pic is really nice. Set on Manual, APP 5.6, 2.5" shutter speed without flash. >>>>>>

5. is ok... bit yellowish. Set on Manual, APP 5.6, 5" shutter speed without flash. <<<<<<

6. Now we go the other way with shutter speed and speed it up to Manual, APP 5.6, 2.5 shutter speed no flash ... way too dark >>>>>>

7. This is ridiculously fast for this light. Manual, APP5.6, 5 shutter speed no flash. <<<<<<

I want you all to have a play tonight and then some time over the weekend I show you how to get fabbo focus and purpose blur.
