About the Image(s)

Happy New Year everybody. This photo is of my 14 month old grandson playing on the putting green at his other grand dad's golf course. Quite an experience, trying to photograph someone who is constantly on the move LOL.
Canon 5d mk iv, 50mm f/1.8 STM, f1.8 @ 1/2500, ISO 200, post in Affinity Photo and cropped for an 11x14 print.

Great job catching your moving target, aka Maxon! I love the pose. It was especially nice that the golf course had a flag to match his red white blue outfit! The yellow golf ball in his hand is the frosting on the cake! Your image is fine as you processed it, but I decided to try some subtle changes. In LR I put a mask on the subject and then inverted it. I softened and darkened the background a little to create more separation between Maxon and the background. I also brightened his eyes slightly. Finally I added a subtle vignette.   Posted: 01/03/2022 14:11:42

Excellent shot Jody! Just enough light to make interesting shadows on his face but not enough to get him to squint and distort his beautiful features. I have no suggestions for improvement. Bet you this one will be hanging on the wall for a while!   Posted: 01/12/2022 14:14:06

I think it is a great capture. I don't think you need to darken the background any more. You have some nice darkening already on the top by having the building in shadow. I don't think you need to darken around his feet.   Posted: 01/13/2022 14:16:34
