Bright Lights: Tips and tricks for photographing Your Holiday Lights

Ever wonder how to photograph your holiday decorations without the accidental and distracting motion blur? or strange color casts from different types of light sources? This delightful, holiday-themed workshop will provide students with the tools and knowledge to effectively and creatively photograph holiday lights and decorations. We will cover the basics of how a camera works and ensure an understanding of white balance. Students will be able to utilize long exposure to thoughtfully and intentionally capture motion. Students will leave knowing how to set up their smartphone camera and DSLR to capture sharp, crisp, and whimsical photographs of holiday lights, candles, and decorations.
