Christmas Curls by billyboy


Small (15.5" x 23.2")

Available to buy on…

As lots of you are thinking about Christmas and doing cards and stuff, thought I’d post this one I did a couple of years back. I did some shots of my daughter after she’d had her hair done and started messing around in PS adding some more curls… and as it was around Christmas time, I thought maybe some holly would look cool, so I went out and bought some and shot it with the same flash set-up as the portrait. I added the holly in PS, but thought it was missing something to finish it off… so came the idea of the candle, which I also shot with the same setup and thought it fit nicely into the curls.

I decided to add the text and put the picture on our Christmas cards to friends and relatives that year and was totally blown away to find out how many of them thought I’d actually put a burning candle in her hair. I guess that was a sort of compliment that it looked so real? Anyway, you guys should get it on first sight… right?

    I must be stupid, because my first thought was OMG her hair is going to burn.
    Great shot, you have a beautiful daughter.

    Great PS work.

    If you’d not disclosed the truth I also would have thought you were a bit crazy for having a candle in her hair.
