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 "[[xref:|Photograph Spectacular Christmas Lights|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.
