f/5.6 aperture,1/800 shutter,18-55mm lens, 10am at park. This was done in full sun, where I usually blow out his white coat! I used Jim Zuckermans advice in class about unerexposing by 1 f/stop. I think it worked beautifully!

that's a royal shot. I really like it. Did you use flash in this? and congratulations. #1229458

Thanks so much for the kind words!! I'm still in the learning phase..I should have used 'fill flash' (I'm just now learning about it). So, I had to lighten some areas in Photoshop.
