I had the great pleasure years ago to shoot a Christmas story for English magazine Eve. We shot the Christmas story in a beautiful Edwardian home in the heart of London with a gorgeous model and two mini-models!!
And what a glam Christmas the stylist created!If only I was so glam on Christmas day…
Shot using:
Tri-x 400 pushed two stops
Kinoflo continous neon lights created this soft light!

    Hi Carla, wow love it! Inspired again. I have several lovlies here today so I am getting straight off this computor and try a glam christmas photo shoot. Hope you don't mind me being a copy cat (only for the general idea of course) lets see what I can do with my little bit of natural light and my camera. xxCorrina.

    Oh my, that first photo! And as always, yeah for Leica!

    I actually have one special coat that I wear on the 24th and 25th that is very glam indeed. It is one of my vintage bijous–an amply cut cream wool 1950s coat that is studded all over with rhinestones! It is lined in heavy cream satin. I think that it was handmade. I love it!

    Oh! How utterly glam! Hmmm, mine will more than likely consist of us lounging around in our pj's for hours opening pressies and having a champagne brekkie.
