Happy Birthday to my wonderful nephew Aaron! Today he turns 3 years old, and what a 3 year old ball of energy he is!

Well, I need to get a lot of photos sorted yet this evening so I will leave you with a quick rundown of what I did to make this image.

I used my favorite indoor portrait shooting setup, namely, my 70-200mm telephoto with a half gelled Speedlight, fired directly at the ceiling with the zoom around 50mm and the EV value at -2. I find that in houses with standard to low ceilings this setup works very nicely as f2.8 is frequently not wide enough to be used without a flash.

Typical post work on this picture as well, CC, NR, sharpening, and contrast enhancement.

Have a great evening!

  1. I like this picture of the birthday boy! He certainly was a ball of energy and excitement. I guess that is what turning 3 does to you. 🙂
