One of the mandatory things for a birthday bash is a cake facial - preferably a very creamy chocolate cake :) What do you say?
Here is my friend Rajesh, all excited after his birthday bash and ready to welcome a new year! Rajesh is getting married next week and let me also wish him and Nithya a wonderful married life.
The pic is taken using a Canon EF-s 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS lens, handheld in manual mode, f/4, ISO-100 and 1/60s exposure. Thanks to Tiju for lending this lens to me for trying out. I quite liked its focal range and a more than useful IS. For the relatively lower price, this lens is more than handy.
Rajesh was at his balcony when I took this shot and the clean black background comes from the dark surroundings - as it was quite late in the night. I used a Vivitar 285HV strobe on camera, bounced from the roof to make up for the lack of light. The pic is unedited, except for the resizing and addition of the watermark.
