My Daughter's Shoe
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
My Daughter's Shoe
My Daughter's Shoe

My 25 year old daughter's baby shoe sits on top of the homemade, knitted blanket she was bundled in at her christening. I wanted this to look nostalgic, so did a high contrast B/W in my camera settings. Then, in PS, adjusted the color balance until I got a nice sepia toned effect. Set at a f/5.6 for a shallower DOF. Natural lighting. My daughter is going to have another baby in February, so I am thinking I am going to frame this so she can hang it in the new baby's bedroom. I think she will like that.
