Decadent Christmas

Well first of let me say a big Merry Christmas to all my readers!!

I’ve wanted to do Christmas themed editorial with the Fuji X-pro 1 and was musing on the many different ways to approach it…at first I was thinking of going the whole hog and including Christmas trees, logs, lights, Christmas turkey  and the proverbial Christmas sweater..a bit like this 🙂  Then I thought about going for a more sophisticated winter theme, much like this Vogue China shoot, which I love! I eventually decided to stick with the Christmas theme but ditched the tree and sweater and instead evoke thoughts of Christmas with the use of colour and mood….
