Christmas Light Photography Tips

Today we have a topical and excellent article from our friends at Picture Correct, giving you all the advice you need to help you take images of Christmas Lights, both in the home and outdoors. It was written by Chuck DeLaney who has been a professional photographer for over 30 years. Since 1998 he has been the director of the New York Institute of Photography, America’s oldest and largesphotography school

At this time of year, many of the world’s cultures and religions celebrate holidays that involve lights. While the use of lights and candles is often explained in terms of the rites of the particular culture, most scholars agree that the lights came first; the explanations followed. After all, since humans gained control of fire, light has been used to illuminate the darkness – especially, during the depths of winter – rather than curse it.

To read the article in full, which includes some very good images to illustrate the advice given, follow this link: Christmas Light Photography Tips.
