Building Christmas Card 2016

Once again the Christmas season is at our doorstep and along with it comes this years Christmas card build! Though not as fun as the 2015 card, after all how often can you use a leaf blower during a photoshoot! The shoot itself went smoothly. Both models were well behaved and cooperated. The tricky part, as you will see in the time lapse video, was all the masking of the tree needles. I tried several techniques before deciding to go with an old school channel mask method which rendered the accuracy I needed.

I hope you enjoy watching some behind the scenes shooting and editing and if you have any questions about the techniques used, please feel free to contact me.
