Wild About You

Uploaded: October 16, 2006


I REALLY love this photo...and I accidently deleted the first one. I really DIDN'T mean to delete this photo for "September" rounds (good thing it was before judging took place). I uploaded and entered it in "People" for October. I also added all the original comments. Sorry about that everyone. Thanks for all of your nice comments and support!

*W*O*W*!!! Thank you guys for the AWESOME support and comments! Thanks to BP for the POTD Award! I am very happy!!!

I took this with a Canon RXT with a 28-105mm lens using manual focus. The ISO was set manually at 200. I had an external flash and bounced the light almost straight up (with a diffuser attached). I also used a three-light set up with softboxes.
My model, is my sweet bubbly daughter. Her expression REALLY shows her personality quite well. This whole shoot was so much fun...just like her!

Thanks to all of you again! :)
