I took this picture of Jordan at the end of November... It's so sweet and innocent and I just love it.
The problem is, I wasn't paying attention to my ISO setting and it's WAY too high... like, 1600. Eeew - grainy! Since I was shooting in JPEG and not RAW, there wasn't much I could do except soften it to get some of the graininess to smooth out. I'm bummed because there's really not many opportunities to take a picture of Jordan looking so... calm. It's not the greatest composition with the chair in the background (it was before I got my f/1.4 lens) but it's still a cute pose.
So, I softened it a bit and increased the contrast a little before converting it to black and white and adding a blue filter. I don't know why blue, but it worked. I'm not good enough to have all of the knowledge as to WHY I did something beyond enjoying the result...
Again, I'm not going to pretend I'm a photographer.
I just have cute kids.
