April (!) Portrait Competition Entry
What is the photo of - Maddy (3), daughter of our friends Pauline and Guy.
When was the photo taken - A couple of months ago.
Where was the photo taken - Cafe, Cambridge Botanical Gardens.
Why was the photo taken - I wanted to capture her enjoying the chocolate ice-cream.
Why was this composition chosen - I wanted to get close-in, to avoid distractions. I wanted her face, covered in chocolate, to be the main interest, but to be sure to get the cone in the picture, so the context was clear.
How was the photo taken - Canon 350D, EF-S 17-85 lens, ISO 100, 1/50sec. Focal length unknown (likely 17mm).
How was the photo processed - Basic levels, curves, colour saturation, cropping and unsharp masking.
