I didn’t realize how difficult it was to capture light and color in a dark environment until I tried. Unless they were in the background, the colors were washed out and the objects I was trying to photograph were either too dark or too white. I got some beautiful bokeh, though. The original photo looks even better.
I think I’m going to look for these lights to hang on my patio. They were draped all over a huge tree, hanging down like vines, and they looked gorgeous.
