f3.5, Kodak 400CN print film. Shot in my living room. This was a candid shot I took while attempting to shoot our family Christmas portrait.

I think my candid shots came out better than all the posed shots. Of course I was working with the timer on my camera (within my control) and the high energy level of my toddler and fussiness of my infant son (out of my control by a longshot!) Oh well, it was a fun experience. Enjoy! #93716

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
