Take Portraits Against Holiday Lights



Want to cruise your neighborhood and shoot holiday lighting at night? Armed with a tripod, it's easy to do--be sure to read "Photograph Spectacular Christmas Lights."

While you're at it, shoot some portraits. You can put people in these bright, colorful photos, as long as you remember that you need to combine a slow shutter speed--which exposes the lights and decorations in the background--with a flash to illuminate your human subjects. The best time to get these photos is around dusk, when there's still a little light in the sky.
