Well, I am still in the San Francisco Bay Area, celebrating late Christmas with my family, and you know how I love to do these ‘wiggly light’ photos, where I shake the camera around while shooting in low light to make lights leave patterns on the image because of the shutter staying open longer…
And what lights are better for this than Christmas lights?
I still haven’t taken notes to narrow down the best lens, or the best distance to do these.
I like not knowing what I will end up with. Most of these are taken of lights way up the street.
Half a block seems like a good distance.
But it is still all about the wiggle.
And the zoom?
Now that one, and the next few, were of the tree in the same room as I was.
And I don’t remember what lens I was using, the regular or the telephoto.
But I do remember that I had way less time for wiggling. More light, maybe?
Does it even matter?
These aren’t as good as the night cityscapes ones, I do know that much.
But just for fun, I do them.
Because it makes me happy.
