Happy Thanksgiving Portraits
Well, I hope everyone had a ball (butter-ball?) this Thrusday. Great subject for portraits, Tom!
I struggled with the dim lighting at Grandma's house. After setting the ISO to 1600, I had some more luck, but many images were a bit grainy.
Here are those to whom I am quite grateful:
She Who Must Be Obeyed
This is horribly under-exposed, but it so perfectly captures her kind and playful nature, I just had to post it. Truly challenging portrait in very low light, and will little warning (I was playing with the camera settings, and she had decided I should put it away :scratch ).
Happy Thanksgiving Portraits II
Bath-Time for Cousins
Happy Thanksgiving Portraits III
A Little Thanksgiving Ham
The fill-flash is a little much, so I’ll probably crop out some of the ladder and PhotoShop it before framing.
Here’s another without the flash. I love the contrast, but not totally thrilled that half her fact is over-exposed.
Happy Thanksgiving Portraits VI
Again, this was in VERY low light. Here is another with more exposure. I struggled on this one as well. The darker is crisper, and is more representative of the moment.
Happy Thanksgiving Portraits V
OK... At the risk of taking over, here are some of the honorable mentions:

I really had fun with this, and I think some of these could find their way into Christmas stockings…
