Christmas Light Painting

December 23rd, 2008 · 11 Comments

Laura over at dolcepics did a great post on Christmas tree light painting.  Her images are so beautiful!

Here are my tries at Christmas tree light painting!

And below is my attempt at hearts…


Oops, how did I manage to make upside-down hearts?!

I need more practice!

Go over to dolcepics and see Laura’s fantastic images and then check out more images of light at Shutter Sisters.  They will bring joy to your heart!

    Hi d!

    Thank you! If I manage to get the hearts right-side up, I’ll post it!

    these are lovely. I’ve been out of town for days and so incredibly busy now that I’m back … I’ll try to get to Shutter Sisters but that may have to resume after Christmas. May you and yours experience a Christmas/Hanukkah (whichever you celebrate) that is full of light and joy!

    Hi Gayle! Great work! I love the colours and the darkness and warmth of the room. I hope your heart one turns out…. mine was a bit of a fluke actually. :)

    Hi spread your wings!
    It was fun! I’m so glad I saw it on Laura’s site.

    Hi diane!
    Thank you! Hope you get some time to relax during the holidays!

    Hi Jen!
    I love that this looks equally pretty with color and just white lights!

    Hi laura!
    Thank you! I will definitely try again for hearts!
