What Did Katie Do ?

By chase
My colleague's little girl.I asked her to think of something sad...so she did Wink
I like the emotion this one shows & there are many ways to interpret this image I feel..I have mine,I will leave those to one side & see how you see this.

Lit by one Interfit studio light with softbox attatched,reflector opposite.

F8 manual mode
1/200th sec handheld
F/L 34mm
ISO 160
Raw file converted in Lightroom,a light texture added on a masking layer & curves adjusted in Photoshop.

Thanks for dropping by to have a peep.

What a BRILLANT capture. I think if this beautiful little girl was smiling and not sad looking it would be a more pleasing capture. I do not like to see kiddies looking unhappy. Still gets my vote

Beautiful image. She looks as if she is sorry for doing something wrong.

Thanks everyone.
I did get loads of her smiling,I just wanted a different emotion from her,not an easy task for a vibrant 7 year old either Wink Thanks for your thoughts.

Tugs at my heart - brings back memories of what is probably best left in the past for me. I this image itself is amazing. So well taken, perhaps the NSPCC would like it for one of their posters. Ann

Ann,I'm sorry this image may have raked up emotions not best remembered for you Sad...but that's the look I was going for.When I saw this on the computer screen my first thought was...NSPCC.
