Christmas is a great time for photography and with all the colourful Christmas lights around it’s the perfect opportunity to create some beautiful bokeh images. Using Christmas lights as a backdrop you can create beautiful and unusual out of focus balls of light behind your subject. This technique takes a bit of practice but is pretty simple once you get it right, and in this issue we show you exactly how to create gorgeous bokeh effects with your own Christmas lights to make some truly beautiful and artistic images.
