Merry Christmas 2013
Another Christmas is already here. They really do seem to come around faster and faster every year. I wish I could figure out a way to make things slow down.
I’ve had a few assignments in the past week to photograph some of the Christmassy-ness around where I live. I got a chance to get out and do a little bit of Blue Hour Christmas light photography. The Blue Hour was more like the Blue 25 Minutes. The first 15 minutes after sunset was still just a little bit too bright. The next 25 minutes or so were great, but I had to work quickly. After that I could still see a little bit of a blue glow to the sky, but it was too dark for me to get the shots that I wanted.
(Above: Incandescent bulbs produce such a lovely, warm glow, especially in contrast to the blue sky. I photographed one other Christmas tree that was covered in cool, white LEDs and they just don’t have the same visual impact.)
