Vision of Christmas

When creating an image for others to use, most images start out with some sort of vision in my head – but sometimes that vision simply doesn’t pan out.

And so it was at Doonbeg Golf & Spa resort – after having taken a quick shot…

.. of what I thought would make for a very nice Christmas table setting.

Put up the tree, dress the table and quickly lit it to see…

.. but it still just didn’t seem to be right – and possibly was never going to be – as sometimes happens in life.

Trying too hard or trying to get too much in, is often the problem – so rather than continuing with this, I decided to go for an alternate tighter angle instead…

.. which immediately looked so much better.

And so, after Marie had worked her magic – which once again involved ‘less being more’ – we all smiled at the final result…

.. as it just looked so simple in the end.

So if your vision of Christmas isn’t quite panning out – remember, sometimes less is more – or alternatively, there is always Doonbeg should you fancy a wee break from it all 🙂

Anyway, Merry Christmas everyone – from Marie, me and the team at ampimage… have a good one!!
