Birthday

Birthday

It’s your birthday!  Just a spontaneous portrait of the birthday girl.  Taken with my new Canon 135mm f/2 lens.  Actually this was a mistake that turned out.  I did not do a good job balancing my ambient with my flash and the shutter speed dropped too low.  This was taken at 1/20 sec and I am amazed that it turned out.  Typically I would not even think about a shutter speed below 1/100 sec for this lens and preferably 1/200.  All’s well that ends well I guess.

Technical – the flash was flagged to avoid any direct light and bounced off the wall to my left.  Good light I think.  Edited in Lightroom with a touch of color adjustment in Photoshop.
