While her big sister was at Guiding camp for 5 days, on day three, Danika was extremely moody. Not even a fun filled playday cheered her up. The only thing that finally broke her sadness was the return of her big sister! Aislyn on the other hand, didn't miss us at all!

She looks so sad. Its typical for those ages I think, the younger misses her friend, the older one like the freedom.

Its quite a bit underexposed Marty. It seems to me metered for the light behind her, and not for her face.

Get in very close to her face, set your exposure, then move or zoom out, re frame and take the shot. Or, when manually metering, add +1 to compensate for the overly bright background compared to her shaded face. Popping the flash up so it fires helps too, - it should only use enough power to fill in light, not overpower the shot.


The mod is very bright, because I left the background as bright as her face need to be to show how much more light is needed. Easy to clone out that blue piece on the left.

It might be my monitors settings (I set it manually, to my eyes), but the exposure is bang on, on my laptop. For the blue thing on her right (our left), is a metal table she was sitting at, when I took the photograph. At one point, she had her head buried in her folded arms, on the table, not crying but very sad. In a few hours I will upload a "reunion" photo that shows how happy she was to have big sister back.
