Photographer Reveals How To Take Stunning Portraits With Christmas Lights In Ordinary Bedroom, And Results Will Amaze You

Photographer Irene Rudnyk decided to get into the holiday spirit with a photoshoot using the warm ambiance of Christmas lights.

In a short video giving a behind-the-scenes view on the process, she showed how she did it and gives tips on how you can recreate the gorgeous portraits at home in an ordinary room. Using a Canon 5D Mark III DSLR camera and a Canon 85mm f/1.2L lens, she hung strands of Christmas lights from a bedroom ceiling to create a warm glow.

Her model, Emily, stood by the window. This will give us a very interesting contrast between the cool-toned window light and the really warm light that emits from the string lights,” says Irene, wrapping the lights into different positions to create a rich ambiance that is perfect for winter-feel photoshoots.

If you liked Irene’s video and want to see more tips on how to create beautiful photoshoots without expensive lighting equipment, you can see more here.

I've done the same thing with less than $700 worth of camera and lens. These results have nothing to do with the camera she is using.
