Photographing Fairy Lights : Makelight

This week's Makelight Video is all about photographing fairy lights. I have been using these cute star fairy lights for my Instagram images for a few weeks now and I can't wait to get into the full flow of Christmas images from next week onwards. 

Here I am creating a flat lay with added sparkle! 

Here are the images I took after I shot the video.

And this is what happens when you try it after the sun has gone down. Not really what you want!

So, remember to take your fairy light images in daylight!
