Christmas Lights

Last night, while my husband and I were out walking Casey, I thought I'd try to capture some Christmas bokeh shots.  I had just read about taking Christmas bokeh images, prepared a collar and some masks for my lense, and I thought I was all ready to go.  Well, apparently it's harder than it looks.  Obviously, for starters, I need to take my tripod out with me!  However, I did get some fun shots of light trails because I started to intentionally move the camera around as I was taking the shots.  Not what I was going for, but interesting anyway.  Now, if you excuse my, I need to go do some more reading up on this topic.

  1. You did get some fun shots!!! I learned to do the bokeh at the recent night photography class I took...we did snowflakes...it was so much fun....I also learned to do the 'swirl' lights...I have one posted on my blog today from the technique I learned at that class. These are great!!

    1. Thanks Danielle. I should look into taking a class like that. I'll go check out your blog and see what you've done.
