Christmas and New Year are perfect for picture taking - definitely lots of food, lots of going out - many photo opportunities!
The first image was taken on the New Year Night (mmmm maybe table cloth should be ironed, but I really love the stars on it :)
Second image was taken during family lunch after Christmas - absolutely loved the house decor with warm and vivid colors.
Finally, last one was a quick on the go pictures of one of the cafes on Montpellier (France).
I really tried to move a bit further away from the main subjects on the pictures, as normally I tent to go very close, almost macro. The class really helped me to see how I can incorporate more into the shot, yet not making it too messy :)
