A nice little boy playing and having a peek at his toy and Christmas tree. Merry Christmas for all of you.
TECH-INFO: this picture is actually not taken by myself but by a good friend. I have set up the lighting and settings on my camera, she framed and pushed at the right moment. Thanks to her I have some very nice images of me with my family that day (including the day before).
I used two speedlight flashes. One at the right pointing to wall and one at the left behind the camear lighting the the ceiling. This gives a nice soft and flattering light. Look at the Christmas ball in the tree to get an idea. After RAW conversion in DxO Optics Pro I made the background a bit darker in Photoshop. Also colors and contrasts are enhanced, it's partly destaturated and cropped into 2/1 format. Finally vignetting is added.
