#1 Christmas lights in the foreground
The image below was captured by placing Christmas lights in the foreground then focusing through the lights on the small boy this is a perfect use for the techniques taught in the video lesson.

#2 All white lights with a white sweater/clothing
I really like this it is a very clean Christmas look.
#3 Opening Christmas with the tree lights as a Bokeh in the background
This is one of my absolute favorites. You could replicate this by simply adding a light in whatever package the child was opening.
