Cute one, Piper.

My son came down with pneumonia, the poor thing, so I haven't had a lot of time to shoot lately.

I have a question for you, I will send you email later, bye for now.

  Very creative, Piper. The fish are in perfect positions so as not to obstruct your cute subject. I like it a lot.

  Thanks, guys. This is a practice shot. I plan to improve this technique by using different lighting and a bigger fishbowl. I am trying to "copy" a similar shot of Nancy Brown's I saw at Nikon.net. You can see her much better shot in the Legends galleries. I got a new HUMONGOUS 5-in-1 reflector panel for Christmas, so I was trying to use the gold side to bouce some light into Liam's face through the bowl. I'm thinking I'll just put him out in some overcast light next time and use the white reflector underneath. Would love you all to join in and see what you can come up with as far as lighting for this technique.

  Thanks, guys. As you can see, there's a lot of glare and unwanted reflections to correct. This bowl isn't as clear as I would like either. DOF is a hard one, as well, since to get everything in focus slows the shutter down too much--and this was ISO-400. I think some more even light from an overcast day, or shade on a brighter day, might be the ticket to everything falling into place.

  Thanks, guys. Sorry to say I haven't perfected this yet....my fish died...

I really hate to buy more fish just for a photo. I'm not very good with fish, apparently.

  I knew it! I knew it! So glad to see this among the finalists, Piper. I liked this one better than your second one. So sorry to hear the fish died, though.

  Thanks, everyone!

Amalia, I have been busy -- trying to make a little money to help pay for my new camera. I haven't shot anything in a couple of weeks! I think this is the longest I've ever gone without touching my cameras. Scary to think I might forget everything I've learned. Promise to get back to work here soon.

  Thanks, Shell. Congrats to you, too. I knew your puppy pic would take the big prize. Awesome work.

Did I see where you had submitted your work to an agency? Email me and tell me all about it! If you're worried about not having enough images, you should keep checking around with various agencies. Your work is so good, I can't imagine them demanding quantity over quality. It's obvious that your talent should outweigh any quantity issue. There are shops out there who value small portfolios when those few images are unique and the photog is excellent, as you are. Anyway, would love to hear all about your latest adventures!
