Christmas photography

Thanks to Cheryl Johnson at www.feelgoodphotos.co.uk, I have been experimenting with indoor photography.  I am taking her ‘12 days of Christmas’ workshop, which I thoroughly recommend.  She has sent out 12 photo prompts, one each for the first 12 days of Christmas, and then we have to put together a collage by the end of December.  You’re too late for this year, but take a look at her site for other classes through the year, especially ‘Painting with Light’, and maybe think about signing up for next yearSmile

So with some hints and tips, I tried to capture my family at lunch yesterday, possibly the best photo ever of them!  All I need to do now is ‘stage’ it a bit better and have a better foreground and background.

And here’s the dining room fireplace:

I have to tell you that it took me all morning to clear the table from craft stuff!  The room looks fabulous once it’s tidySmileSmile

Lovely family pic Linda, and I had to laugh at your clearing of the dining room table, as that's exactly what I did yesterday as my final bit of Christmas decorating!
