The Lights Show at Christmas at Timberlake Woods Begins Again
Each year after we eat Thanksgiving dinner we walk outside at my brother’s house to watch the light show he has produced. It really is a fun show that combines music and dancing lights to provide a good time for all. This year the show is a little longer, and had a new song in it. If you are near Martinsville, Indiana on 37 then you need to stop by and see the show after dark. You can find out a little more info on the show here.
Photographing a Light Show in the Dark
It sounds crazy, but you really do not want to photograph a light show in the dark. The dark background and the lights just don’t seem to play well together. I want some detail in the house so I really always want to photograph this show at dusk. This weekend just didn’t work out for that. We were eating as the sun went down on Thanksgiving, and the next day I was shooting the Big East volleyball tournament as the last light left the sky. I will have to get back down to Martinsville to watch this show in some good light to make some good images. I like what I made, but I know that I can do much more in better light.
The Week in Photos
Last week was a fun week for me. I was able to make some photos of Christmas lights as well as shoot some fun games. You can view some of my favorite photos from last week here. This week is pretty full so it should be another good week. Tonight I will be in Terre Haute photographing a men’s and women’s doubleheader for Indiana State. I will leave from Terre Haute and head to Columbia, Missouri to photograph the Purdue volleyball team in the NCAA Tournament. Hopefully that means two wins in two days. A trip back home Saturday should provide some good photo opportunities before one last game for Colgate Sunday here at Purdue. This should be a fun week of photos with a little time on the road thrown in.
