My gorgeous Santas ♥
Christmas started early for me as I’ve been quite lucky at work and my boss let us run with a fun Christmas idea – a digital *guess the work colleague* advent calendar.
I managed to persuade some of our crafty DIY colleagues to make us a basic wooden frame and taped & nailed some baubles and other Christmassy bits’n bobs on it. I then literally took the same shot 25 times with a different person for each day and started playing around with their pictures in LR4. Man, that was fun! The comms team published it on our Intranet and also the corporate FB page and although most people discovered some unwanted facial features they all seemed to enjoy waiting for it to be their turn ♥ It’s taken my love of photography to a different level and has brought with it some new opportunities that I cannot wait (!!!) to explore in 2014 ^_^
Looking back at 2013…..there’s no getting away from the fact that it has been a truly catastrophic year for our family and one I for one cannot wait to leave behind.
On the plus side: things at work couldn’t be better; we even managed to pull off a *Made in Chelsea* inspired Christmas jumper shot and seem to have discovered our very own boy band ♥
Next on the list: a bigger lens! A wide angle one is definitely top of my list, so is a lower F range (my trusted Nikon D5000 with its standard 18-55mm lens does not manage to achieve anything lower then 3.8). I think I’m ready to move on; just wish I could say the same for my purse ;)
All that remains then is for me to wish you all the very best for 2014; let’s all have a blast and stay healthy and happy ♥
