My sister spent a 12 hour day, Christmas eve, running her gourmet food business and making sure her customers got their xmas goodies. She & hubby hosted both a raucous Christmas eve and a somewhat quieter Christmas day with all the trimmings. Cooking, entertaining, support & backup – a much appreciated effort all around.

Learning something again – lighting. Main flash to the left, fill flash from the on board camera, no reflector, dodge & burn the darker areas, tone down the lighter ones.
