Please go to the 2nd page to see the re-shoot. Thank you!
I have seen variations of this before and gave it a try. Since it is also a self portrait I found it difficult to get the lights more evenly distributed after getting the shot set up then joining the family.
Do you like this for a Christmas card or do you think it's cheesy? Don't worry about offending me, I really want to know.
