Have you ever wondered how to take a picture in front of your tree without a flash? If you have a camera that will allow you to manually control your settings you will be able to take a photo just like this. Here are the settings to the pictures I took of my daughter in front of our tree.
I have a Nikon D7000 camera.
Shutter Speed: f/30
Tip: Make sure there are no distractions in the picture like cords, vents or windows. This allows for the focus to be on your subject in front of the tree.
