And this is Christmas...? Are you kiddin' me?

posted on 16th of october, 2007
Are you planning on uploading Christmas shots? Maybe this brief article will be of some help in deciding what to actually shoot, so that it will stand out and be a somewhat special Christmas shot. Read on, and please - do comment and share your thoughts.

First I want to clarify - this will not be a guide to making Christmas stars backgrounds, nor setting the correct lighting for a nice Christmas tree shot with gifts.

:) Icyimage, you guys do a lot of people shots. Have you thought about delivering some Christmas images which are a result of your passion and your gifts in photography? Perhaps you can take on the challenge and try some people shots that express the joy of the Christmas day. :)

The birth of Jesus, and His coming on this earth was the best thing for the people. No one bring such wonderful message:"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men."But His birth is nothing without His life, His sacrifice, His death, and His resurrection. He gave us hope that no one does, and no other can. Living now with that hope we expect again His glory coming, by His promise, where be no tears, no pain, no death. So the piece of the great puzzle of life for me is exectly this one.

Tangie-I agree with your comments. I am a Christian. I am new to stock, though, so getting in the mindset of how to translate that through photography is a challenge. But, one I will enjoy. Wonderful, WONDERFUL post, Petar.
