Phoneography challenge: star of light

Capturing Christmas?

This year we’ve abandoned the traditional Christmas tree (to which we are all slightly allergic) for a minimalist “light -tree”. Not only are we itch and sneeze-free, but it takes up no space and doesn’t shed needles everywhere. Still trying to figure out what to do with our star,  but short-term it’s sitting under the “tree” – where I’ve been photographing it.

I’ve played with stripping out all the colour from the shot then adding a little back with a filter. I quite like the way that such a limited colour palatte emphasizes the light source in the shots.

These photos were taken with an iPhone 4 and edited with Photo Editor by Aviary, and this post was written in response to Sally’s weekly phoneography challenge at Lens and Pens by Sally.

Here are some other posts I’ve enjoyed from the challenge:

    • Thank you Janet. We’ve really enjoyed our “light tree” and have found we don’t miss the real thing too much. Well, maybe the smell of pine .. a little bit!
