Christmas Photography Ideas using a macro lens


Welcome back everyone! And here are the photos to vote on. Cast your vote by clicking the poll (at the
top right corner) or leave a comment below of your favorite photo. Now let’s take a look at the other photos. It’s Christmas time again! Today, we are going to practice macro photography
on some Christmas ornaments. Our goal is to create a nice festive Christmas
wallpaper with our photo. I’ve found that the best place to photograph
Christmas decorations are at hotels and resorts. So here we are! Start the music… Alright, let’s take a quick look into my old
version of Photoshop and I’ll show you what I did. For the snowman photo, I added some text with
a snow type font style. I added a red snowflake behind it. And here are all the snowflakes. You can see that they are all on their own
layers so I could control them separately. And this is how I made the snowflakes. I searched Google for some free snowflake
brushes for Photoshop and I installed them. And here they are. Then I just pick the ones I want and put them
on the canvas. It’s that simple. For the next photo, I just added some text
and put a gold outer shadow on the text. For the last photo, I did the same thing except
the shadow is black and I also added a dropdown shadow. Alright, there you have it, don’t forget to
vote on your favorite photo by leaving a comment below, or click the poll to vote. You can download my favorite out of these
three photos and do whatever you want with the photo. Enjoy, guys, and don’t forget to like and
