This time of year, there are definitely plenty of lights to photograph, but I wanted to do it in a different way. I saw an article on http://digital-photography-school.com/ earlier this week about using impressionist techniques in photography, and I immediately thought of Christmas lights. I LOVE Christmas time, but there’s no denying that it can be chaotic, crazy, and a bit frenzied. So, here’s my impression, using our mini Christmas tree on the fireplace, a slow shutter speed, and some zoom.
