    May I know how to create this red light? Are you bringing the light source with you, great photographer?

  • Hi Ray, we used very powerful torches and then put red cellophane paper (not sure how it’s spelt), it’s the clear colored plastic wrapping paper that you put around wine bottles as gifts, and then with an exposure of about 30secs we shone the torch over the tree to get the effect. Have to keep the torch moving or you’ll get burnout in the highlights, try it out for yourself.
