BE SANTA TO YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY
H0! Ho! HO!
We often hear that we should learn from our mistakes…
Last week, I had the digital opportunity to hammer home the importance of properly positioning a subject to get the best portrait photo. (All photos are SOOC-straight out of camera)
The setting: Early morning, construction site: St. Croix Bridge in Stillwater, MN….
The subject: This friendly man with a twinkle in his eye (pretending to be a construction worker–while really making notes to his list of naughty and nice…)
The second mistake….placing Mr. Kringle with the sun in his eyes causing him to squint…
Finally, by photographing Mr. Claus with his side to the light, I was able to get a clear picture of who this man really is….
I hope this flattering photo will place me on the “Good List”….
….perhaps a new 70-200 lens?…
