Q: How do you favorite a photo?

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

well, yesterday was full of fun :)

before i go any further, a quick tip; if you wish to photograph kids easily, turn cartoon network on for them, and thats it! it glues them to the TV, and all you have to do is sit there and snap :)

anyways, i got hold of my wireless flash commander, along with the SB600 and SB900 flashes, that didn't turn out too well, because of my poor multiple flash skills... so i had to resort to the ever-so-good one flash trick :)

while she was watching Tom & Jerry on cartoon network, i asked Saman (pronounced as the english word Summon) to give me a quick pose, and she was polite enough :)

i did experience some focusing issues with the sigma 70-200 2,8, but i soon realised that its not quite good when it comes to fast AF in low/dim light :)

i used an aperture of f/8 to keep things sharp and a shutter of 1/50s to compensate for light, ISO 800 was used to take care of the rest :)

the original was in color, and i quite like that, but chose to stick to the monochrome version for TL because it just looks good :)

this is one of the few photos that i have edited solely in Capture NX2, without resorting to Photoshop at all :)

did a quick crop of 6x8, making sure it stayed as close to the original frame as possible, the film filter was applied using a Capture NX plugin called Color Efex Pro, from Nik Software, its nice and easy :)

thanks for viewing :) let's see what u think of this one :)
