It was late, it was Christmas Eve and we were both tired from the preparation and activities of the day. It would have been easy to plop down on the couch, flip on a movie and snooze until Christmas morning. Instead we decided to make a short trek, with gear in hand, to a nearby park to make a holiday picture.
It didn't take long but the picture and the memory will last a lifetime. And, it was actually a lot of fun too!
I wanted something a bit different tonight for family Christmas pictures so I pulled a fun and dynamic technique out of my book of tricks - "the jiggle". I know what you're thinking, "just what exactly is 'the jiggle'"? Well, read on and find out.
Four Chickens and a Camera has nothing to do with chickens and everything to do with a camera, or, more precisely, my exploration of photography. This is my outlet to share successes, failures, discoveries and insights as I learn what it takes to make great photographs.
I make my living with my camera and much of my work can be licensed for a reasonable fee through the following stock agencies - Getty Images, Alamy and iStockphoto. And, you can always email me directly about licensing an image.
