It’s hard not to get a good shot when your subject is as cute as Sophie, but there’s something else I like about this shot, and that is that is was not a posed shot. I saw her sitting there and took two quick shots in the (indoor) available light. Snap, snap! It took three or four seconds to make the shot.
I’m also very proud of the fact that this image was made with a super-cheap manual-focus portrait lens. I’m wonder what kind of results we could get if we actually try to make a good shot. Maybe if I control the light on her beautiful eyes a little better. Next time for sure!
