4th December 2009 – Christmas Card fun

Written on December 4, 2009 – 11:43 am | by BryonyParkes |

This year, as mentioned in a previous blog post, I am making our Christmas cards to keep costs down. I’ve got some prints on order from Snapfish which I’ll then use to do some arty crafty stuff one evening next week.

If you’re on our Christmas card list, you can still look if you like. These are a couple of the shots I took, but the picture I’ve chosen for the final result I’ve helpfully omitted from this small selection at the moment ;-)

My two little girls:

Alice (3 years 8 months)

Evie (10.5 months)

I wanted them bright to contrast with the card I’ve bought to put the photos on so crept up the exposure during editing. I didn’t want the shutterspeed any slower due to the fact I was shooting children after all yet didn’t want to make the aperture any wider as i wanted more in focus (still bearing in mind wanting to use natural light as much as possible, loving the 50mm). I am pleased with them though, and I love the effect. It gives the impression of wintery wonderland I like to think. Please share with me your Christmas Card photos if you have some, I love seeing them!

Photos taken at 1/100 and f/3.5

    Both lovely pictures, that I think would be lovely for cards.
