You may remember our adventures in taking Christmas card pictures from last year.
This year on a Saturday morning we set the camera on timer and let the fun begin. Taking pictures on timer is not as easy as you think. It involves a lot of running back and forth. Which often means that people are not ready.
We also do not have a tripod so the camera was propped up on Christmas storage bins. Not exactly prime picture taking conditions.
We ended up with many awkward shots:
Tons of goofing around:
A noble pyramid attempt that we had to abandon due to lack of time and patience and ability to form an actual pyramid.
Some okay shots:
Some where just one person is goofing off:
Or one person is cut in half:
Too far back:
Way too far back (but a lovely photo of the carpet):
And one that wasn't perfect, but we really look like us. And that was exactly what we wanted.
