Sofia: Children Portraits

Sofia is the daughter of my dear friend Nilufer, who owns Splendor. She provides fabulous shawls and umbrellas for brides, who want to pamper their guests regardless of the time of year. Brides of Colorado, Nil is the woman to look for if you need some warmth and shade :D

We had a blast while photographing Sofia. It turns out, she is a very busy bee!  Nevertheless, she posed for me in between collecting sweetness around her  and made me one happy photographer :D

As I went along photographing, I found out that Sofia changes roles from a bee to a little fairy. Isn’t she adorable? :)

    These images are incredible. I love how you captured her spirit. She was so comfortable with you, which made the whole experience a lot of fun. You have a wonderful gift; thanks for sharing it with us.

    Nice pictures, I am guessing it was a prime lense you used. What was the f number for the first shot?

    • September 17, 2010 at 1:21 am

      Addy, the first shot is taken at f/2.5 with the 50mm f/1.4G lens. All of the images have their data embedded in EXIF – check out my EXIF article in order to see more details.

    As usual I’m in awe in the quality of your pictures. After spending a lot of your articles in your website I know that you use post processing for every image. I have a D90 and take a lot of pictures with a Nikon 50mm f/1.8G lens, I have also played around with the images in Photoshop but they never come out looking as sharp, with such vibrant colors or as clear. I know that you have been doing this for a while also but is there any advice that you could give me that was useful for you when you were newer at this? Thank you.

      Thank you Conrad! I do not really use Photoshop though, unless I need to work on some fine details – most of my post-processing is done in Lightroom. Check out some of the articles that I have written on Lightroom, I share a lot of techniques on post-processing images there.

      Photoshop is great, but not for a large number of photographs.

    Can you recall what color mode were in use in jpeg? Or it was nef?
    How did you manipulated colors in Lightroom?

    I really like your work and admire you as a photographer. Even though I am just discovering this site. I would have love to see the settings that you used to take each photo.

      Donellie, Lola and I always leave camera settings on images – they are available in EXIF Data.
