The holiday season is the ideal moment for taking portraits of family. There is something about Christmas that puts a smile on people's faces. In between starters and main courses, I set out a mission for myself to try and take a couple of portraits of my closest family members. Some time ago, I read a blog post by Zack Arias where he regretted the fact that he never took a nice portrait of his (grand)father. I remember thinking to myself "He's right, the next opportunity I get I will try and make a nice portrait to enhance the memory of that moment."
So this year, I brought my light stand and umbrella to the party and took a couple of snapshots.
After reviewing all the pictures in Lightroom, I decided to keep a colored and a BW set. I like the way they fit together.
