The most wonderful time of the year brings some of the most memorable photographs! Join us as Jeff Van Scoyk presents the many opportunities for making creative images during the holidays. Photograph Christmas lights outside and in, commercial displays, and family portraits. Decorations provide macro subjects galore, and you can maximize your bokeh with Christmas lights in the background. Do not forget Santa! Jeff will discuss subject ideas, techniques, and some hardware that will help you capture better holiday images! Then, those photographs make the most wonderful gifts; cards, mugs, ornaments, and calendars.

Turn your artistry into amazing gifts that you and your family can cherish for years to come.
