Wakefield commercial photographer: Redrow Homes Horsforth
As a Wakefield commercial photographer I get to shoot many subjects but today I am convinced I photographed the real Santa Claus! ;¬) I was working for Redrow Homes again, this time at their Horsforth site and, like yesterday, Santa was there to meet the children and hand out a few pre-Christmas gifts. No fake beards or padded suits here though, he was the real deal and there were even reindeer outside on the lawn along with a choir. The showhouse was decked out will all the trimmings and looked cosy and warm as Santa met with kids both young and old. I captured Santa’s portrait (above) with a speedlight in a softbox I’d set up in the kitchen on roughly 1/16 and had it feathered across the lounge to give some nice directional lighting for depth and also to avoid specular highlights in the window behind Santa.
