8 dazzling holiday photos taken by Local Guides

To welcome the holiday season, places around the world are covered in dazzling decorations that light up the night sky. Whether it’s a spectacular tree or a festive market, these holiday spots can be great places to take exciting photos.

 

Before you start snapping, review how to get the best shots in low light. Remember to turn off the flash and hold your camera steady. This will help you avoid camera shake and keep the lights from looking blurry in your photos.

 

To get you into the holiday spirit, here are some amazing photos taken by Local Guides around the world. Each one successfully captures the magic of holiday lights during the winter season.

Hey @Christina-NYC,

 

Thank you for collecting these lovely photos.

 

I've been dreaming to visit the Red SquareRockefeller Center and Santa Claus Village for quite a few years now and not necessarily during the winter.

 

However, a Christmas lover like me should definitely go and enjoy the holiday spirit. 

 

Merry Christmas @Christina-NYC!
