Ho ho ho! My favorite part of Christmas is all the holiday lights!! Here are a few tips for taking photos:
Photography holiday lights at at dusk before it gets really dark. At dusk you can balance the ambient light with the lights for a pleasing picture. If it's dark, you may only get the lights and everything else will go black. Unless of course you find houses that are lit up completely!
Here are a few great places in Southwest Florida for Christmas lights:
Fort Myers: Burroughs Home – hurry – this one closes on December 23. Edison & Ford Winter Estates Holiday Nights runs through January 4. 1536 Pinecrest Rd
Bonita: Flesher Farm at 27865 Bonita Grand Drive
Naples: Third Street south – go on a Thursday for SNOW. Victoria Park – it must be a requirement to live in this neighborhood to go crazy with lights!
Wear bright color clothes so you don't get hit by a car!! Most of all – have fun!!
Happy holidays from all of us at Understand Photography!
