Christmas Shots Take One

I have to re-shoot these. I've never been very good with night time photography. My idea for a Christmas postcard this year revolves around darkness. I don't want to make the boys all lit up because then you can't see the Christmas lights. I'm thinking I need Daddy to hold or a clip light above to point down at the boy's faces. To act like a spot light. Then I'll have my shots down. It's too bad because I got some good expressions. You just can't see them very well.


I'm going to Photoshop Duct Tape over their faces. Then the text will say, "Silent Night". There will be a disclaimer at the bottom saying something to the effect of, "Children were not harmed during this photoshoot. Tape was not actually used on them." Then no one will get in a panty bunch saying, "Oh my God did you see what they did to their children! That's child abuse!" Although knowing my kids, they would think it's funny more then abusive.

You are so creative! I love it. That one where they are looking at each other is precious.

LOVE them! I love the shot of them looking at each other. We are taking a family picture this weekend for our christmas cards. Should be interesting.

I LOVE this idea. It's so creative and cute!!!!!! You might be right about just a little light up there, but not too much. Just enough to let their handsome faces glow.
