Soldier Blues

Uploaded: April 13, 2007


LBJ Library, Austin, Texas - BP Photo Shoot. They actually had a reddish yellow light on this soldier display, but I thought he looked blue, so with some white balance adjustment, I was able to bring his true feelings out...

Exif: F Number: 5, Exposure Bias Value: +0, Exposure Time: 10/40, Flash: flash did not fire, White Balance: manual white balance, Focal Length: 70mm, Camera Model: NIKON D70s

Your composition and use of light sets it up perfectly for the effects you applied. Excellent work, Richard! #4184603
