I just wanted to take a moment and wish everyone a Merry Christmas today. Also, I wanted to ask those of you with kids, grandkids and pets if I’m the only one who encounters more of the left photo than the right photo when trying to take pictures of my crew?
The right photo is the one single “good” photo we got in a 20 minute window before we threw our hands up in frustration.
We tried to entice the little one to sit still by offering him a candy cane. Of course, Hank wanted to candy cane too, which meant the big one had to headlock Hank as the little one pushed his sister off the chair.
I actually loved the chaos so much that both photos made our Christmas card this year…
For those of you celebrating Christmas, how do/did you shoot your Christmas morning photos?
I plan on bouncing a cheap 300-watt Impact Tungsten Qualite off the ceiling in the morning as the kids open the presents and taking photos with a fast 50mm f/1.8 or 30mm f/2.8 lens on the Sony A6000. I will probably also bust out the Mitakon 35mm f/0.95 for some shots as well.
We’ll be back to regularly scheduled programming later this weekend. Until then, Merry Christmas from Photography Bay.
