The Spirit of Christmas

Wanted to take a different tack this year with the annual Christmas Card photo. Thought of this the night we were going to shoot- an HDR shot of the boys seated in front of the Christmas Tree all aglow…

I think it captures the fun, and the wonder of the Christmas spirit… the glow of the lights really comes though and rim lights their caps. I think of all the images I’ve taken of them, this one is really special. Wish I could keep them this age forever.


Shot taken with a Nikon D3, 24-70 mm lens. 3 bracketed images, finished with Photomatix, and Photoshop CS3

  1. awesome shot! It looks like santa put an sb-900 under the tree for you!

  2. Love it. HDR really pumps up that tree. I might have to go hunting some Christmas lights over the next couple of nights and give it a go…
