I almost forgot that the Christmas cards have gone out and
that it was okay to post these images!
The credit for the inspiration for this set up goes to fellow photographer
Beth, at Photosbyejrussell
She, graciously, hosted a mini-mentorship with two of us. (it started out being 6)
One of our assignments was to copy the work of another photographer, with that photographer's approval. Our goal was to recreate the scene, the light, the feeling, of the image.
After doing that assignment, I found a set-up that Beth had used for her Christmas mini seasons and
like a good student, I asked for permission to recreate her idea.
Thankfully, she said yes!
