We have our nice new home with our Christmas decorations up and colorful. I want to capture a few good pictures (interior and exterior) of the festive feeling, but I don't want the overly yellow glow I get using *just* available light (those "white" lights are warmer than regular tungsten!) -- and I don't want to wash out the colorful lights.

So -- along the lines of shooting a fireplace -- what are some hints for shooting Christmas lights?

With film, use tungsten film, either neg or slide. (The exact type will vary.) Or, use daylight film, with ceiling bounced flash, balanced to the ambient exposure of fireplace and xmas lights.

With digital, select tungsten color balance, or use the same balancing method as with film, on daylight setting.

Or, use an 80A color correction filter with daylight film.

Those will all yield slightly different results, but all should be in the ballpark. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

I was thinking flash with a dragged shutter...?
