Photo of young child eating
Caption: Young Boy Eating

Bookmark and Share  

Technical data: Photo taken with a Nikon SLR film camera and Nikkor 85mm f1.8 lens; hand held, ambient tungsten light. Approximate exposure 1/30 second at f4.0 - Fuji Sensia 200 transparency film. No lens filters were used.

Film was scanned using Minolta Dimage series film scanner. Photo file was routinely optimized using Photoshop; levels and curves, color balance, sharpening, cropping and dust spot removal using clone tool. I use a Mac for all photo processing.

Comments: Snacktime is good picture time. While setting up the photo session I gave this young boy his snack and kept a camera handy. A few minutes later, while still setting up, I hastily grabbed this photo. There's a lot wrong with the picture: it's soft from camera shake and the background isn't right for starters. But I love the shot anyway. He's totally natural and his personality is exactly as the picture suggests. (See also: Photographing Children)

This is a good example of why you should always be ready with a camera, even while you're getting ready to be ready with a camera. Also, technical flaws in a picture aren't always a show-stopper.
