Late Santa


Late Santa, originally uploaded by Jim Frazier.

I wanted to play with some new studio toys and had been meaning to photograph my favorite Santa from our collection. The off-center composition was by accident but beat the other shots I took. Then, Kate suggested a setting for our 2009 Christmas card, which you'll see in 11 months. So I got that finished already - nice to be prepared.

The mark on this sculpture appears to be S Burgess '90

Lighting information: camera right is a SB600 into a white foam-core reflector set perpendicular to the subject.

While on a swing that started in Jackson, Mississippi, I visited the Mississippi bridges in Vickburg and Natchez
