A photograph is worth a hell of a lot more than a thousand words…


Moya is the 4th newborn I’ve shot since opening my studio, and the 3rd to poo when undiapered. She is crowned with the distinction of being the least cooperative of all of them thus far. She had absolutely zero interest in being photographed and did not take kindly to the strobes. Eventually, I just turned off the flashes and used the modeling lights on the strobes. Even though this little princess has achieved Diva Status by the age of 14 days, I still managed to get plenty of good photographs for her mother to select.

This particular image was shot with the modeling lights only. I don’t remember the aperture offhand, but it is obviously large, probably somewhere between 2.5 & 4. I do remember pushing the ISO to 800 in an effort to get the shutter speed up high enough to catch the little wiggle worm. In post processing, I did add “film grain” to mask the color noise produced by the higher ISO.
