Photo Shoot:Christmas in the Snow



My 1959 Barbie in a red velvet White Christmas Cape and gown.

My goal was to capture a picture for a Christmas Card.

My first efforts with flash, ugh!

Washed out because of flash, Again, too harsh!

Even doctored in edit, still not right!

I threw a set of frosted lights in front of my scene.....and retook my pictures without the flash.

Suddenly the lighting was perfect without the flash.

An evening in the snow...mysteriously enchanting.

I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas...
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!

    1. Thanks so much Amber. The Barbie thing started with my Grand who is now 5. I have a lot of Barbie post on my https://oldnewgreenredoblog.blogspot.com blog also---I finally separated them, but the vintage cross over still applies. We built a house for the Grand and that started it all!
