Photo Friday Christmas Winner Colleen Sleer

What camera did you use? Canon 5DMKII

What settings did you use? I used a speedlite bouncing from the ceiling, and on manual setting

* Exposure – 0.006 sec (1/160)

* Aperture – f/7.1

* Focal Length – 50mm

* ISO Speed – 400

What inspired this shot? I was attempting a xmas inspired shot which had to include his huggies nappy for a nappy competition. I wanted something different than the cutesy pose, and our turkeys had hatched quite recently, so thought I’d attempt something to include one.

Did you edit this image, if so what did you do and with what program? I added a texture over the top, as the area I was photographing in wasn’t exactly ‘pretty’, I used photoshop, but my photoshop skills are very basic.

Do you have any advice for our community of photographers? I take my camera everywhere I go, always be ready to snap.

Where was this photo taken? Under our patio, we have the wood fire to use in winter, we live rurally so with the total fire ban during summer months we can’t use it, so it wasn’t actually cooking the turkey 🙂
