Photographing Christmas Lights

Yeah, I know. It’s not even Thanksgiving and here I am talking about Christmas. Unless you live far away from any town, village or city, at least, in the United States, you’ve seen Christmas stuff in the stores since mid-September so I feel I can start a little early, too.

As some of you may know, I contribute to a Disney blog about photography. It’s called Picture This! and is hosted by Deb Wills’ website. (If any of you are thinking or planning a trip to Walt Disney World, Deb’s site is the place to start. If you go there, feel free to tell Deb I sent you!) Back to business…

This week I posted a blog entry on Picture This! about taking pictures of Christmas Lights at Disney (click the link to read it). However, the links, tips and examples I give can be used for any outdoor light display so I thought I’d share the article here.

Do you have any tips, links, resources or examples which we can all learn from for capturing the upcoming holidays?  If you do, share them with us by leaving a comment here.

    Share any successes you have with your Christmas light photography!

    I am hoping for good weather to put up my lights this weekend. Wish me luck!


  3. Good luck with the weather!! I just read on Birgitte’s blog that you got about a foot of snow? (Totally jealous over here!!!)
    I can’t wait to put up my decorations, but I’m going to wait until the first week of December or so. The tree won’t go up until the week-end or so before Christmas.

    Oh, and if you have a World Market near you, you can find those European drinks there 😉 They have a website, too.

    No WorldMarkets in NY but have bookmarked the site for future reference. Neat stuff there.

    Well, November has returned to it’s normal cold, damp, rain/snow mix. Most of the snow has melted so it’s looking good for putting the lights up over the weekend if I survive shopping on Black Friday. Wish me luck!
