Some things about this image…
- Yes it is a self-portrait. If you look closely you can actually see my camera on its tripod with in the middle of the bauble.
- The background is a green/brown colours because behind the bauble is fairly dense woodland. However the view the other way shows blue sky because I was on the edge of the woodland.
- I used a long lens to get in close enough to the bauble to get the reflection within.
- Yes I am on my own in the woods. That is nearly always the case when I work outdoors.
- The only editing I have done to this image is to increase the exposure (excuse the pun) in the bottom half of the bauble and increase the clarity of the whole bauble so that it pops a bit more.
So would you like to hang me on your Christmas tree…
Yes Molly, I would more certainly hang you on my tree <3 Another cracking shot x
You would look AHHH-MAZZZZING on our tree!
Great pic – well done!
So creative. You truly set the bar.
I hafta to remember to try this sometime.
Oh my! A beautiful image and technically perfect also.
It’s beautifully done
Awesome effect… Perfect decoration for any tree…and any time of year 🙂
My oh my the creativity is so so good, a Christmas bauble that will be a gift that keeps giving each year.
Oh, Molly, this is fantastic! We have seen so many people attempt a photo like this one, and you have truly nailed it! Gorgeous and sexy and so inspirational! ~C
Wow, Molly – this is a brilliant and inspiring piece of photography; it’s the kind of picture that makes me want to drop hundreds of dollars on a new lens!
Well you are going to spend money anywhere when it comes to photography it is best spend on the best lens you can get for your budget!
Another fantastic outdoor shot from you!
Of course I would. However based on how our tree decorating went this year the U.N. will have to be called in to negotiate it with the kids prior to hanging you up.
This is wonderfully clever.
Such a brilliant photo . . . and the most interesting bauble I’ve seen this Christmas!!!
Xxx – K
This is *such* a great photo, re both the technical side and the subject matter. Brilliant!
That really is a great pic. I tips me lid and drops me jaw, frankly.
Technically amazingly clever and accomplished, and then there’s the beautiful woman.
A really great photo!
Now, that’s some ornament. Best photo I’ve seen in a long time.
Oh absolutely, you’d win hands down over tinsel every time ;-p
I really don’t have words to sum up how amazing I think this image it! Remarkable! Xxx
Molly, this is so clever and fantastic! Thanks for telling us how you did it, you always have the most creative photos and I’m always wondering just how you managed them. I just love everything about this. You are continually inspiring!
