For some reason, I wanted to light the portrait to be more dramatic. Now, dramatic lighting and portrait of small girls usually does not go together, so I was not really sure how this one was going come out. I showed mom the position that I wanted the light, and she did a great job putting the light where I wanted—watch-out Steve, you may have lost your VAL job!
Camera settings: Nikon D3, Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 at 70mm, shot at ISO 200, f/11 and 1/90th of a second with a SB-800 at 1/16th power.
Lightroom—Set white and black points, added mid-tone contrast, added clarity.
Photoshop—used nik Color Efex Pro Monday morning filter to add a little more drama to the photo.
