Red Shirt-Photo a day #13

I was able to pick my daughter up from school today, which mean that we got to have a photo shoot! She loved her red shirt and wanted to keep it on even though it was her school uniform. I liked the bright red as well.

ISO 1000 ƒ/2.8 T 1/800

I think this image is a good example of why some minor editing is helpful in digital photography. Here’s the saved jpg from the RAW file:


While this image is decently exposed with a histogram in range, a level adjustment and some minor sharpening in post help it out… There was plenty of daylight out but I was messing around shooting at 2.8 for the sake of experimentation. I didn’t realize how hard it was to get eyeballs in focus at 2.8 with a child that is in constant motion. smile So here are my initial edits in Aperture(Mac App Link):


I’m happy with these few edits, but I like to play with other tools as well and see what they do as well, so I added a few Effects in Perfect Photo Studio 6:


Hope everyone had a great Friday the 13th!
