Day 363 – Christmas Photoshoot

I was delighted to take photos of my neighbours grandchilden for her over Christmas – a chance to try out my new round flash and on the whole I think it works really well, it enables me to move the catch lights where I need them, essential for working with young and active children and to help control the light.

Day 357 – Christmas Carols

To help with the festive mood I visited a nearby market town to enjoy the Christmas carols organised by the Romsey Lions Club, I had my DSLR but no one really had a camera so instead I opted for hubby’s new camera and a scene mode – which meant it only capture the photos in jpg.

I converted them into black and white in Lightroom to add a more timeless feel.

The scene mode used a very shallow aperture to take a series of quick photos at a range of exposures and then processed them together in camera – it enabled me to take some atmospheric record shots of a very busy event.
