Or whatever your holiday needs. You should see this bigger on the (newly redesigned!) blog

The only Photoshop on this was high-pass sharpening for that contrasty look -- that glowing door doesn't lead anywhere, it was closed and only about four inches deep. The light was entirely accomplished by two SB-900s parked behind Brendan.

This has been the wildest year of my life by a very, very wide margin, and I have been blessed by being able to see and photograph so many great things. I'm already excited about the places 2010 is going to take me. Hope to see you along for the ride!

    Really great shot. The contrastiness (is that even a word) really enhances this.

    Christmas Tree

    Love, Peace and Joy came down on earth on Christmas day to make you happy and cheerful. May Christmas spread cheer in your lives!

    Żeby karp był doskonały
    i pierogi smakowały.
    Dużo szczęścia i radości,
    w tym dniu samych pomyślności.
    Prezentów i humoru dobrego,
    wszystkiego najlepszego!

    Ich wünsche frohe Feiertage, das ist doch klar und ohne Frage. Bei Tannenduft und Kerzenschein, möge alles friedlich sein!

    Sueño con una blanca navidad,
    como las que conocía
    donde las copas de los árboles brillan
    y los niños escuchan
    Para oir campanas de trineo en la nieve.
