Technical data: Photo taken with a tripod mounted Olympus SLR film camera and Zuiko 85mm f2 lens using existing daylight. Approximate exposure 1/500 second at f8.0 - Kodak T-Max 400 black & white film, processed normally. No lens filters were used.

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

Comments: This boy was embarrassed about his missing tooth and would hardly pose at all. I tried everything to coax a laugh or smile; nothing worked. So I pulled out my secret trick - whacking myself on the head and shrieking. This trick always always works.

I was photographing in a large outdoor stairwell that opened toward a brightly sunlit parking lot (see also: Introduction to Photography - Watch Your Background section) which provided the beautiful light.
