Challenge: Natural Light Indoors (Basic Editing)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Canon EOS-40D
Lens: Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro
Date: Apr 7, 2010
Date Uploaded: Apr 7, 2010

My unwilling model sat for less than four minutes (Spring Break calleth... *sigh* ). He's usually very willing, so I knew not to "push it". *sigh*

On the last shot (the 13th) I finally asked for a genuine smile.

Done. :)


I hope you like as somewhere near as much as I do. But, since I'm his mommy, I doubt you will. *grin*

Still... I'm hoping for a 6. I wish this were Advanced Editing.

Nice portrait. I like the composition and expression on the subject's face. It is hard to make portraits unique and memorable. You succeed with this image. Outstanding work! 10

very well done! the chain is a bit distracting pulling my focus away from his eyes ... this should be on the front page ...

Fun image. Really like the crop, and how the dof affected his chain.

Great portrait. Necklace is a bit distracting due to "sparkles".

Nicely lit portrait and good processing. Not a fan of his mega chopped hand in the shot. It's distracting from his face.
