He’s…four weeks old now (exactly), I believe. Second time I’ve seen him, second time I’ve photographed him. I pulled the camera out shortly after he got to our house, someone commented on it, and his mother said, “Darryl can photograph him as much as he wants.”
Canon EF 50/1.8 II; 1/60 @ f/4.0; ISO 200; handheld; bounced flash; RAW.
Post-processing: Converted to 16 bit in Camera RAW. Soft focus effect achieved via two Gaussian blur layers. Channel mixer layer added to combine red and green channels 50/50 to monochrome. Levels adjustment layer added to achieve desired contrast. Color fill layer blended in to add slight sepia toning.
I think this would be slightly better if I knocked the background out entirely. It’s mostly featureless right now, which I like, but there are a couple lighter areas that I find a little distracting. I’m going to give it a few days before I do any more work on it, though.
