My favorite photo taken this week is this portrait
of a young man who'll be a freshman in high school this fall.
He's at that age when sometimes he's an angel
and sometimes, well. . . .
In other words,
your typical teen.
This was taken with a Nikon D5000,
ambient light in a dim parking garage
on auto ISO (1600)
70 mm focal length
aperture at f/11
exposure time 1/50th of a second
white balance set for shade.
If I were doing it again,
I'd set the ISO at 200
and then alter my settings
and shoot at about 1/20th of a second
in ambient light
so the photos weren't so grainy,
but I actually had forgotten
that I had set the camera on auto ISO.
I'll have a chance to reshoot on Monday
when I take portraits of his older brother.
I just hope that graffiti artists
don't paint over this great background by then.

I'm also posting a
"Best Posts of the Week" entry
but it's one from my other blog.
