Larry mentioned that he would like to see a closer shot of N looking at her reflection in the Christmas ornament where the viewer could also see her face, so here it is.  The reflection in the ball shows a family friend and her mother in the background and I did remove myself although that area, near the branches, was dark and hard to discern much.  I did not spend as much time as I later wished I had, placing her and working the frame and I also wish I had taken some with her dressed in her Christmas clothes as I think that would have added to the shots.  But, it is something I will keep in mind for the future.  Again, the large sheet that I had the juice-diffuser shooting through lit her very softly and pretty evenly from camera left, much to my surprise. I had practiced the set up at home and then did not move it at all once I got it set up at their home, and it went together very quickly so is something I will use again.


  1. I am sure that the family enjoyed this series of pictures. They are good images.

  2. Is that the hard-working photographer I see reflected in the Christmas ball? :-)

    I'll bet this wonderful image will be a family favorite for many years to come.

  3. Cindi, this is my favorite of that series! Your photographs are very sharp and crisp. For someone who loves lensbaby, these are just incredible. Keep up the good work!!
