The Christmas Group Photo

Find all types of Gift Cards at for any occasion

On Christmas Eve or Christmas Day I get asked to take a group photo which is akin to herding cats into a group and getting them all to look at me rather than just groom. The lighting is always poor and I can count on someone having their eyes closed. Here is a decade of these things


This one was successful, lighting was good and everyone looks pretty good. New Boston, NH

Another success, white balance was a challenge though. I’m pointing at a Christmas Card from my niece and her husband in Colorado. This photo was taken in New Boston, NH

The year I tried using a flash, absolute disaster. Count the errors.

Merry Christmas to all of you and a healthy New Year
