A homeless(I think) man from Riga. I asked if I could take his picture, he looked and stared and didn't say anything. I lifted the camera in a taking a picture gesture, he looked and stared and didn't say anything. I took the picture, he looked and stared and didn't say anything. Was kinda intimidating but worth it!
Great pictures everyone! Great contrast in the salt and pepper in the hair.
Here are my 2 favorites, both taken of my daughter in 2011 with a t2i. My wife and I debate which one is our favorite so neutral opinions would be appreciated! As a proud father (and amateur photographer) I like the bow one because of the "serious" look and bokeh. I have a 20"x30" canvas print of this and the resolution turned out great. Can't believe a $90 lens gave that bokeh.
Particulars of the bow picture:
Canon 50mm - f1.8 lens. 1/125th @ F2.5. ISO200. No flash.
pillow and blanket under her
Particulars of the Baptism photo:
Canon 18-55 - f3.5-f5.6 lens. 1/80th @ f5. I believe ISO400. Not sure if popup flash was used.
Mom off to the side making faces and standing by to grab her if she tipped over!
