Merry Christmas to all. I hope all had a great year, thank you for all the wonderful comments and suggestions throughout the year. I always take the time to read what you post. I wish you all the best and safe New Year!

Your Christmas present this year is a cookies for Santa shot I took for the final in my Studio Lighting class. I set up the Christmas tree, and used a 100mm macro lens set at f4 to throw the lights on the tree out of focus. The cookies are lit from below with white LED lights under the cotton “snow”. Its a 15 second exposure, and I painted light onto the cup and the cookies with an LED flashlight during the exposure time.  I hope you enjoy.
