Here it is only October 7th and I’m feeling a bit tired of Christmas images. I have spent the better part of the past 14 days devoted to creating holiday shots for my stock portfolio, but now I think I’m done.

My last shoot was in a living room of a model’s home. The theme was similar to the earlier shoot featuring Alyssa wrapping presents.

Wrapping Presents

By shooting in the living room, even though not much of the location came through in the final images, I was able to have a little bit of a different look than in the earlier Christmas shots. As can be seen in the behind-the-scenes shot (top of page), I used a three softbox setup for a soft light that wrapped around the subject nicely. Even though I had a fairly bright window behind me, it wasn’t providing enough light to affect my exposure.
