My husband bought me a Nikon 50mm f/1.8D Nikkor lens. I’m pretty excite about it. Can’t wait for some really good shooting opportunities. After an abysmal first shot, which I deleted, I took the shot below. I also used my old speed-light, bounced off the wall. The speed-light was obviously way too bright, but I think it gave an intriguing effect. I really like this photo — I think the over-exposure on the right balances with his dark hair and allows his face to fill the frame without being over-powering. I made a few adjustments to the RAW in Ufraw this evening, but I think I’ll play more with this photo and see what else I can do with it.
