I took my kidlet to the park this afternoon. After a bazillion under-exposed "action" shots...she finally settled down and let me get some portraits of her. Mind you...I didn't "pose" her...this is just her being herself. She was actually pretending to be a dog laying in front of the fireplace, but...don't tell anyone... Anyhow...the black and white were shot in monotone. "Softness" was added during processing. I was shooting with a 40-150mm zoom lens, and using the on-board flash at 1/16th power with a diffusion shield for fill. f/4.4; 1/125; ISO 100 f/4.4; 1/125; ISO 100 f/4; 1/80; ISO 100 f/4.7; 1/160; ISO 100 Thanks for taking the time to look!!
