Instagram Winners – HoHoHo

It was your chance to shoot the holidays with the Ho Ho Ho Instagram challenge. You could go festive with a tree or think outside the box and we had a lot of great entries. Shooting a theme like Christmas opens a lot of options for photos, lighting, and ideas so its a nice way to think creatively for a shot or find one.For next week the new challenge fits today with resolution. It's your chance to shoot your goal for the new year. A bit more creative for some depending on your goals but it should be an interesting challenge.To enter post your photos on Instagram before noon next Friday with the tags #PRTV and #PRTV_resolution.

And the team!Toby – Photorectoby Roy – RoyMcKeeIII

Roy’s Winner: terrier is lit quite nicely against the tree making for a nice Christmas photo.  Being low light the faster aperture worked nicely and brings your dog out tack sharp while blurring the background well.

Roy’s Honorable Mentions: a bit out of the box with the biggest bokeh tree in london made for a great concept. Shooting out of focus makes for some interesting photos and it's a neat idea for a holiday staple. a slight bit of elevation and shooting the whole scene makes for a great shot. Going over the water adds the reflections of the lights making the photo a bit busy but a really nice scene overall.
