" I Hate Christmas! "

This is purely down to IanB for reminding me how much fun can be had by just using household items to aid photography.

The below is the first of a series of 52 done for a weekly challenge on another forum a couple of years ago.

Taken with E1 and 14-54 mk1.
Materials:- one white sheet, tree lights behind the sheet, Christmas lights, two LED lights for highlights and the models.

Hope you enjoy

David

Re: " I Hate Christmas! "

I'm in the mold thinking Christmas is the work of the devil, however it was great when I was a mere kid and I wouldn't want to spoil it for them. I blame the blessed retailers for the way I think, encouraging us all to spend as much so possible on each other, not just on children.

I first read about " Drop Bears " in a Terry Pratchett novel, didn't realise they were an urban myth.

Re: " I Hate Christmas! "

I like your picture.

Since childhood Christmas has always been a difficult time for me as my birthday falls on the 21st, a few days prior, so I only got one lot of prezzies for both!

Hence your title resonates, David!
