Holiday Stress

Philippe Dame

Oh the stress of the holidays!

I naturally have lots of traditional holiday shots but I loved this funny expression that my daughter Caprice gave me today. She’s playing here but the moment is open to interpretation when taken out of context.

The processing was mainly the “Lomo Pop” filter from a free set of Lightroom presets offered by Eric Kim (get them here). I tweaked it a bit and took out some distracting reflections on the fridge behind her.

If you’re wondering, her shirt is covered in stickers she applied to herself moments before. I would have preferred a simpler image with those not there but it does add to the chaos/stress she must be going through :) .
