Technical data: Photo taken with handheld Nikon SLR film camera and
Nikkor 85mm f1.8 lens using existing daylight. Approximate exposure
1/500 second at f8 - Fuji Sensia 200 color transparency film. No lens
filters were used.
Film was scanned using a Minolta
Dimage series film scanner. Photo file was routinely optimized using
Photoshop; color balance, levels and curves, sharpening, cropping and
dust spot removal using clone tool. I use a Mac for all photo
Comments: I like the graphic quality of this picture. Fill-flash would have been a big
help, though, as the girl's eyes and face are too splotchy. The day
began as bright overcast, the perfect light for flash-less, smoothly
lit portraits - but by the time this photo was taken the sun was poking
in and out, a condition that called for fill-flash. If only I'd noticed.
It's very easy to become oblivious to changing light conditions.
Photographing this young girl was
a pleasure - once I had the child's mother turn her back to the scene.
I highly recommend this. Parents are no help to the photographer. Of
course, they know their children better than anyone, but their coaxing
and instructions usually make the children anxious and interfere with
my own instructions. Gently lead all adults away from the scene. Bonus
benefit: kids love it when they are told to ignore their parents.
