Weekly Fixations - December 25th

It is Christmas and if all is going as planned I should be on a flight on my way back home. If, instead, that foot of snow has kept me grounded then I am probably getting to spend more quality time on the farm. I hope that all of you are enjoying your time with families and friends. Here's what I found interesting this week:
Would you wear glasses on your wedding day? It makes photos more challenging but some people's glasses are so much a part of their image. Then again, I thought that my thick rims were so much a part of my look that I was worried people would react negatively if I changed to rimless and no one really noticed...
These pinwheels make me think of summer and childhood. Nice thoughts when I am surrounded by cold and snow.

This shoot on Rock'n Roll Bride inspired by Tom Petty's song "Last Dance with Mary Jane" is hauntingly pretty in a very high fashion way. What a fun project to get the creative juices going and it tells a beautiful story.

I like the thought behind this article about Boudoir without lingerie. I think that it would be fun to shoot. Without the lingerie you have to (get to) be more creative and it creates more of a real life vibe versus a fantasy scenario.

Creative rules of thumb to get you thinking outside the box.

Lots of great ideas for displaying your photos at Cool Photo Ideas.

Video tutorial on creating custom photoshop shortcuts.

18 books to grow your photography business.

10 Reasons to shut off your autofocus.

I really love this engagement shoot by Yan Photo featured on Ruffled. The heart made of apples is adorable and the photos make me think of Pride and Prejudice and uncomplicated love.

Hope that your Christmas is everything you hoped for and more!
