This one is very late. I should have posted it before Christmas but with all the holiday commitments, a photoshoot and just being laid back over the holidays I couldn’t find a suitable subject. A couple of months ago I was surrounded by mirror smooth ponds and loads of reflections. Now the ponds are frozen and snow covered and all the glass seems to have a layer of salt.
Last night I went to our local camera club (Camera35) and one of the other members had taken a self portrait at home reflected in a Christmas ornament on his tree. That gave me the idea for this shot. I took a ball from the tree at home and hung it on a tree on a path near work.
I’ve already got the next photo, I was waiting to get this one and post them in the correct order, but I’ll post that tomorrow.
Last samples from this years Christmas sessions. Waited until the parents posted first, only fair. I really enjoyed doing these, will definitely be doing it again next year. Already have some new backdrops and setups bookmarked.
I’m a little behind on my 52 Project this week because I’ve been working on Christmas mini-sessions for friends and family. I’ll admit that I’m a bit of a Christmas nut, my wife calls me Clark Griswold. I was decorating the basement back in November but that was to set up two scenes for the sessions, mostly. For children Christmas holds a very special magic and just being around a kid can make even the Scroogiest of Scrooges a little more festive. I can’t wait for our little one to wake up on Christmas morning and go looking under the tree.
Here is a sample of the photos I’ve taken so far this year. There are others that I wont post just yet since I wont post pictures from a shoot online until after the client posts first, I don’t know if a picture is meant as a gift for grandparents or as a Christmas card and I don’t want to ruin someone’s surprise.
