A Special Gift
This was a fun photo to take. I took it last year with Sony A7r and Voightlander 35mm lens at around f/1.2 – f/1.5. The bokeh of circles and swirls in the back are the burning fireplace. Then up front is one of the Christmas presents wrapped nicely in snowman wrapping paper and a clear red bow on top. Last year when I took this I couldn’t really figure out how exactly to process it but just days ago, I found myself in just the right state of mind to process this photo by giving it a a nice Nostalgic Christmas mood. To me its funny because one day you may edit a photo much differently then the next, but in this case it took me one year to get this photo looking the way it does now.
