'Tis The Season
This time of year, I am busy shooting lots of family pictures for friends and neighbors. I enjoy doing it and they appreciate getting something better than the "Mall Chop Shop" photo of their kids with fake smiles and "one lighting setup fits all". I was shooting pictures for a friend of mine and we finished shooting at sunset. The light had come and gone and we were just chatting about photography. While we were talking, his daughter sat down and was relaxing under some stairs at the park. I popped on my Canon 50mm 1.4 lens to show him how I could capture images even in low light, and this picture was the end result. I love the angelic look on her face. What a cutie! It always amazes me when I get back to my home studio and one image out of the batch really shines above the rest. This was one of those for me (and the family loves it too).
