The Blues

Uploaded: October 25, 2008


My niece Caitlyn working the camera for our annual "glamour shot" series for 2008. I love how Caitlyn seems to know instinctively that a "natual" expression is much more meaningful than a forced smile. Every year I offer this fun event for my many beautiful nieces (and cute nephews too!) while vacationing together in the "north woods" of Wisconsin. PS edits include: crop, sharpen, color sat, curves and light rendering at 2 O'clock.

Exif: F Number: 7.1, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/80 seconds, Flash: did not fire., ISO: 200, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 49.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XSi

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.
I do, I understand.
