Windows to the Soul

Uploaded: October 25, 2008


I really enjoyed this year's glamour shots with my niece Caitlyn. This has become an annual event while on vacation in the "north woods" of Wisconsin over July 4th. Along with our annual water-mellon eating contest (and of course seed spitting too!) the girls enjoy getting "glammed up" for this fun photo session with Aunt Lynn (me).I have enjoyed watching my nieces and nephews grow into beeautiful young people (inside and out) while confidently expressing who they are for the camera. This is the fourth year I have had the honor to photograph them for this series. PS edits include: slight crop, desaturation except eyes, color boost and sharpening for eyes only. Then slight overall sharpen and contrast applied for entire image.

Exif: F Number: 6.3, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/60 seconds, Flash: did not fire., ISO: 200, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 45.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XSi
