December Challenge: Day 18 – Rex Auer

Rex Auer

I already shot one of Rex, but I didn't get much of his face in the photo the last time. That one was more about the masked figure and his shadow than anything else. This one is a little more about my son Rex.

I shot this at ISO 3200 with the intent of converting to black and white. All that “grain” in this shot was grown right in the camera. The nice thing about using a high ISO (in addition to looking decent in b/w) is that you can shoot little hams like Rex in low light without waiting for the flash to catch up. I took about 80 shots of him within a 10 minute window.
