    Rented the nikon lens for Snowy owls and pictures of my kid in the woods. No snowy owls and it's -20 outside. So stuck him out on the back deck and grabbed some anyway. I normally shoot wildlife NOT people but I'm pretty happy with this. Suggestions and help always welcome.

    The first one looks a little soft on the eyes?

    I think a nice high contrast BW would look good here.

    But the DOF and bokeh look good.

    I prefer #1. His expressions in the next two he won't be proud of in a few years! ;)

    I have no idea how to do high contrast BW. Off to learn! I'll check the eyes on it too. Thank you!

    LOL The second one is "his face". It's the look he always gives me. I much prefer when he's smiling. But after a five hour plane ride, a three hour time difference and apparently copious amounts of alcohol last night, he wasn't very smiley today.

    Barb, Just an aside, but you might consider looking into this. Set your exposure for the ambient background light, in this case I would underexpose a full stop. Then use your flash to expose the face. Old technique and widely used, but quite effective in some situations. Anywho a fun/nice new tool for you. ;)
