Default Santa Spud

Hi Chums,
Just found this Santa hat at Mom in Laws today, couldn't resist putting it on Spud.
I Love the first one of him, Think it's my Fave pic I,ve done of him and will be getting a print to go on my wall, to go with the others of him . I cant get enough pics of Spud, Spud, Spud.
Normally he turns away from the camera, but think he was just toooo tired to be bothered today.
Cheers Everyone.
Mark

Great shots glad he gave the time to pose there though it looks as if he has a few feelings about that hat though!

Mark, you outdid yourself on these. Spud is lucky he has you. Give him a pat on the head for me.

Thanks Nora, lol, the hat, i think he's got much easier to take pics of now he's older. Years ago he would have knocked the hat off but he's real chilled now.

Whayy, Thanks Robert Mateyyy, I did the pat Thank you.
You know this white background fade to white thing, Think they call it high key looks to be all the rage in the windows of portrait photographers here. I was thinking about your great Familly shots, I reckon they would be amazing with the soft white out vignette type effect. Particularly the ones of the kids by the Crimbo tree. There Fantastic anyway but think the white would look great on them.
I found on some pics hard to get a nice blend between the pic and the start edge of the vignette.
What I did was white paint brush 100% opacity round the outer edge of the pic, then moved in a bit lowering the opacity all the time and finally running round with the opacity on about 5% blending it all in. There was a fairly light wall behind that made things easier.
Cheeers Mateyyy.
Mark
