Category: People 'n Portraits
Nowadays half of my clicks are of the same subject :) For people who could not guess what the subject is - go here. Only reason, why I dont post more pics of Abhimaan aka Manu (after 'Happy Onam from the little one', 'Mom and Son' and 'Welcome 2010!') is fear of repetition! Anyways, yesterday I realized that I have not posted any of his pics for some time now. So, here I go:
This pic is taken on the new year day and a framed version of this picture adorns our living room now :) It is clicked using the Canon EF 180mm f/3.5L (macro) lens, handheld in manual mode, f/5.6, 1/250s and ISO-400. I had a Vivitar 285 HV bouncing off the ceiling as is common with most of my recent indoor portrait pics :) I am glad I bought that strobe.
The 2nd pic is clicked a week ago, when he completed 6 months. The time is really flying by and the tiny baby is now a naughty toddler :) This shot is now my desktop wallpaper and makes me smile during the tiring work hours :) The pic is again clicked with the Canon EF 180mm f/3.5L (macro) lens, aided with the Vivitar 285HV bounced from the ceiling. The camera was set in manual mode, f/3.5, 1/250s and ISO-800. In comparison to the earlier picture, I was looking for a fuller frame and was further away from him. The flash being on-camera, the light output was lesser due to the distance and I needed a higher ISO and wider shutter (also to blur the background better).
Needless to say, I am enjoying these clicks and I hope you all would like it too!
