Hey all,

Well, meet my 2 year old nephew chilling out, looking into ‘something’,…  hah. Shot it with a little intention of post processing, and 

I used Lr5. Always welcome comments of all sorts DSC_3492c.jpgas usual :D

 

ohh almost forgot… do you believe that I manually focused this ?? :O  yup… u read it right .. its a 50mm 1.8D (so on my D5100 with no focus motor built in,I had to focus it myself) … and with 2 yr old kids…it was harrrrrrrrrrrrd  as hell.. :D

 

here goes Exif data ;

 

f/4        1/200         ISO 320        75mm (35mm eq.)

Great focus!  How many pics did you take to get one in focus?  🙂  I know for me it would have been a lot…

The child is adorable and yes, the focus is excellent under the circumstances.
f/4 didn’t give you much depth of field and you got the eyes spot on.
I might have gone with a higher ISO and a smaller aperture opening, but this really worked for you.  
I would imagine that a 3/4 profile, such as this, results in many more facial features being on the same plane.
Great post processing as well.  I think portraits are the most difficult.

What a cute little boy! Look at those eyes and cheeks. Great focusing, especially manually. 

I would love to see another photo where he looks at the camera.

Well…thanx for all the compliments … Yeah I feel really good for getting those eyes tack sharp, given the terrible circumstances. 

Will post more of him and with my new ‘G’ lens I think i’d get rid of troublesome manual focusing.. :)

 

Thanks again.

 

Praveen.

Mandrake,

Thanks for the comments. Yes the gaze into something ‘above’ defined more facial features. I din’t ask/ insist him to stay so , he just did.. :D and I’m pretty sure he’ll never give the same pose again… :D  (he’s busy playing and never stay a second still- NOT until i manually focus …hahahaha)

Wanna learn some serious post processing.. mind if I post a raw and let you do the magic and later compare it with my own processing ?

Thanks again :)

Hey mscharff,

Thanks for commenting. yeah I shot several and I had this manual focus problem, a newer “G” lens will come to my rescue in a couple of days. :)  I got some not so close to the face and several others with eyes blurred out..
