Shooting photographs of holiday lights can be a great way to celebrate the holiday season, whether you're shooting your own indoor decorations, the neighbor's overwhelming collection of lights that turns night into day, or the city's large Christmas tree. (You may want to put on a pair of sunglasses to protect your eyes when viewing the neighbor's display.)
However, such photographs can be a little tricky to shoot, as the external lighting in the scene usually will be pretty dark, while you'll have pinpoints of light that can throw off the exposure settings of your camera. Although these photos can be more difficult to shoot with a point-and-shoot, beginner-level camera versus an advanced DSLR or DIL camera, nearly any type of camera can capture great holiday light photos, as long as you're using the right techniques and have the right equipment.
