Some girls just don’t like their portrait taken!
This is Gracie. She was at the airfield last night. She was sitting on her owner’s lap looking quite intently at me. So I thought, “Here’s a possible portrait = her face is in the shade and she’s eye level with me.” So, I pulled out the camera and aimed it at her, pressed the button half way to focus and then just as I pressed the button to shoot… she stuck out her tongue. And just as quickly, put it back. If I hadn’t caught the moment, no one would have believed me!
(ISO 80 f/5 1.125 23.5 mm — cropped slightly, cloned out an oddity in the background, burned around her eyes, and used a preset but fooled around so much with the presets, I don’t know which one. It improved the vibrancy and turned up the blue hue and did something with the highlights.
