This challenge was to take a portrait. A tough one – not because I had a lack of subjects, but because I don’t have enough light, really, to do this during the week – I leave home for work at dawn and return after sunset at this time of year. That leaves weekends for someone who hates using a flash. Since I wasn’t happy with my shots last week … nor yesterday … thank goodness, one of my models became willing to pose … again … during our walk this afternoon.
For this shot, I had an ISO of 250, focal length of 28.2, F-stop 4.4 and shutter speed 1/16. It was a grey day and it was taken in natural light. I learned more about the focus ring on my camera and how it works this week – how to get it to focus on the point of interest. Still working on that, but I’m getting there.
