3) THEME: Vibrant, Colorful, Saturated
4) Christmas is a time that gets to be all about colorful light. One of my favorite childhood memories is driving around and looking at christmas lights in neighborhoods that got together and decked out for the holidays. Here the light source (in this case, a christmas tree), is the focus of the image. Well*, focus of the photo isn’t the right term though is it? The twig is what is in focus, but the photo would be rather boring if we were simply looking at a twig in the foreground. The individual bulbs, pulled out of focus, become circles, the circles piling and blending into a wash of colors behind this rather meaningless branch at center. Photographing light without a subject for it to fall on can be difficult, sometimes near impossible. If this photo were to put the individual lights in focus it certainly would not have the sam effect, and probably would not come out as an interesting photo to begin with. “Glow” is something I would closely connotate with Christmas: The glow of a warm fire, the glow of family and friends close together, the good cheer that fills our lives for those few cold weeks—this photographer has captured the glow of the christmas decorations and the colorful life they deliver.
*Imagine that “Well” said sort of like David Tennant’s Doctor.
