ARCHIVE 191 – FATHER AND DAUGHTER (MONO)
November 5, 2015 2 Comments
The baby’s mother loves the direct and very vital connection between the baby’s rapt gaze and the father’s smiling face and she’s totally right. I also like the apparently huge size of the father’s hand as it rests on his daughter’s diminutive shoulder.
I don’t have a lot of confidence with people pictures, but luck has won out here – and this sort of close, intimate shot is one of the things that, for me, monochrome is all about.
D700 with 105mm Nikkor; 6400 ISO. I was very new to both digital photography and the D700 when I took this, and I have a vague recollection of frantically raising the ISO to 6400 to keep pace with the faltering light conditions, and of then setting matrix metering and trusting to autofocus – with a lucky outcome!
