12 Days of Christmas

Oops, been meaning to share these for quite a while - in fact, I started to draft this post while it was still seasonal!! Here we go at last, a few of my favourites from the free CJ photography workshop 12 Days of Christmas :)

A spot of bokeh

Close cropped composition
 Some photo editing fun
 
Reflective

Winter weather

Drawing with light

Portraits with a difference
 
I had a lot of fun responding to each prompt, even though my mobility was still pretty limited at the time which meant I couldn't try out all my ideas - I have plenty of mental notes for Christmas 2013, though :) Many thanks, CJ!

Love the berries and the reflections. I really enjoyed that class as well. I still have one lesson I want to try even though Christmas is long over.

Love your pictures. The drawing with lights kind of freaked me out. I didn't even try this prompt. I may have just built this up to be harder that it really is, but it still seems like a big obstacle to me. Yours turned out great.

Oh fun - I hear you on the 'starting this when it was seasonal' problem.

I was a little bit confused for a moment there, but loving how much you're enjoying your photography now. You've really started to develop a style! x

These are so fun! I love the reflective one, and the winter weather one. But the portrait one has to be the best - I will definitely have to do this! x
