lighting 101

Need a little creative inspiration for a holiday photo this year? How's this for easy? A dark room, big book and a string of lights to give a magical look of Christmas. You'll want to do this in a dimly lit or dark room. The string lights should be placed down in the center of the book low enough so that they're not seen, but high enough to create a glow on the face. Now, rest-assured you'll need to set your camera to the correct setting, but's as simple as that. Good luck!
