Waiting for Christmas

© 2017 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott

My daughter is always gung-ho for Christmas. She’s been out buying decorations for her room (including the tree shown in the defocused area here) and even has done a “room tour” for her YouTube channel (which you can find here:). So when I asked if she wanted to model for me for a few portrait shots with the new Canon 85mm f/1.4L IS, there was a quick smile and an instantaneous “yes!” I just added a ring light for a one light solution that wouldn’t kill the ambiance of her room, and we got a number of really cute images. Here’s one that’s sober and yet lovely. Processed to taste. You can see more images (including the original) here:  She’s waiting for Christmas, but can hardly wait!
