Jane M July 12, 2006

Thanks so much to Terri, Marcie, Sharon, Jeff and Ross.

Ross. Recently I took some traditional portraits of my friends boys in their baseball outfits. This young guy had a hard time cracking a smile so I experimented with him holding his mitt in front of his face. With the evening light I decided to keep hats off. We all know what a nightmare shadow on faces can be!!! #3018098

This one really caught my eye when I was browsing through the photos in the Canon Rebel xt section! I love the SC on it -- Very striking eyes and creative pose! Looks like he's contemplating a winning pitch, heehee!

Great job Jane!
