The varied colored miniature lights were the only source of lights here on this self portrait as I turned the main room lights off to see what I could do with very dim lighting and of course set the camera on a tripod with a 10 second self timer. I set the white balance to incandescent. We like to keep the tiny artificial Christmas tree up the month of January, and sometimes through the winter to brighten the corner of the room..The clear lights that came with the tree burned out but am enjoying the colored lights better that we got for it after Christmas ...I didn't add decorations on it this year as the artificial pine cones and cranberries that came with the tree I think are sufficient enough for a tree this size along with the lights.
