Christmas Tradition

I have been laying off photography a bit recently, but a couple of nights ago I broke out the camera and took some photos of my daughter in front of the tree.  We had this idea to hold up her ornament from this year, and I was pretty happy with the results.  I wanted the focus on the ornament with 2 layers of blurred depth.

Every year each of kids get a new ornament which is added to the assortment on the tree.  This year it was Christmas snow globes. Always a great event for our kids to kick off the season when they get to open their first wrapped gift of the ornaments.

As a combined early Christmas, birthday and general business investment, I purchased a new camear over the weekend.  The Canon 5D Mk II is my first foray into a full frame digital SLR.  I am very exited to put the camera through its paces and learn how to maximize the new capabilities it offers me.  Stay tuned for some test photos and a little review of my initial impression.
