Quiet Elegance

Quiet Elegance

f/2.5, 1/125, ISO-1600, 50mm

This is my niece – on my wife’s side of course. No one on my side of the family is this beautiful. This is another holiday shot I got on New Years, and like so many other of my favorites it was very nearly an afterthought. My wife and I were saying our goodbyes and just about out the door when I realized that I hadn’t gotten a picture of her yet (she was a late arrival) so I quickly put the camera to my eye and fired off a couple of shots.

The result was, in my opinion, one of my best portraits. Sharply focused yet highlighting soft features. The only lighting was from a fairly harsh florescent ceiling light, and I was frankly surprised at how soft the result turned out to be.
