Happy Christmas

Last year my neighbour brought me an Elf on the Shelf… well two of them and challenged me to take some photos of them… well the Elves had fun, they came on some photoshoots, went out on location and broke into her house when she was on holiday… this is the result… 25 photos… one posted each day of Advent.

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 358 – Christmas Fun

Not a perfect selection of portraits by any means, but a great team of people who I am lucky enough to have in my life and who really know how to party hard.

Today’s blog – the Christmas party highlights!

Merry Christmas everyone!

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.
