The other night I was taking some photos of our Christmas tree and not long after starting to take photos I asked my mom if we had any extra strings of Christmas lights since we got a smaller tree with lights already on it. We didn’t have any lights so the next day after getting Christmas lights I started taking more photos.

I knew what I wanted to achieve right away and already knew what settings to use from having had done research on long exposure with lights.

While taking photos I just tried different lengths of shutter speeds and even brought out my coloured gels for a bit.

Overall I’m really happy with how my photos turned out for it being the first time I’ve done long exposure with lights. I’m going to continue trying different long exposure photos in the future since I have quite a few ideas bouncing around my head right now.
