Past Christmas Classics: 2006 CHRISTMAS CARD REJECT PHOTOS
No. 03 - "WE WISH YOU A MERRY VICKI"
Here are a few shots taken of Vicki as I was trying to figure out white balance and whether or not to use the camera flash with our little Canon Digital Elph. I love how you can just see feel the tension and fatigue growing stronger with each frame. It was around midnight on a work night when we were taking these and Vicki was not a happy camper.
The only reason we were shooting this so last minute was because earlier in the day I had picked up what was supposed to be our Christmas card at the lab and it didn’t exactly pan out.
Bit of advice: I would not recommend taking a Christmas Portrait with a Holga if…
a) you have never used a Holga before
b) you have a person who has never operated a camera take the picture.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, we ended up going with a home depot work lamp as opposed to the flash. If you look at the third frame you can see why, Rigby looks sooooo much better.
