The magic of Christmas, its markets and its decorations
Every year you wait eagerly for this time of year. The quest for the tree perfect passing by a stop at the Christmas market to drink a small glass of mulled wine and take pictures of the illuminations, you-DO-REZ Christmas and you want to photograph everything.
This is the perfect time to achieve bokeh* in blurring deliberately the Christmas lights. To get nice bokeh, you need to frame your photo in such a way that the illuminations are in the background and make the focus on an object close to you.
If you just want to photograph the illuminations, plan your exit just before the dusk, between dog and wolf. This is what we call “the blue hour” in photography, because the sun has gone down but the sky still has some blue hues. You no longer have to wait until the lights come on ! All of these photos will be perfect in one of our Photo Books.
