As my first posting for 2009, I thought I'd send you all our family holiday card photo from this season. It was a composite that took us all many hours to complete, but the result was a lot of fun. If anyone is interested, I can explain later how it was done. In the meantime, HAPPY NEW YEAR! And I will do my best to post more frequently in 2009!

UPDATE: A ton of people have emailed me asking how this shot was done, so I threw together a quick video showing some of the outtakes here. Enjoy!

I sincerely hope that your affliction isn't contagious... I will send the doctor over to treat Steph as well...she appears to be ill!! Great shot - Maybe call it "American Family Tragedy"

Don't know what Einstein said about relativity, but for me that's creativity... Well done, Mike, great shot.

Clever! Not sure where you find the time to dream up this stuff, but I did pass this on to a few friends. I bet your family had a blast creating this.
