I captured this image at our ward's Christmas party. (For those not familiar with Mormonspeak, a ward is a church congregation similar to a Catholic parish, and membership is always based on the location of a member's residence. In other words, if we lived two blocks east of where we are now, we would be in a different ward.) I took several portraits during the event, all except this one candid. I had to use my 70-300mm lens, which has limitations when used with indoor lighting, so most did not turn out particularly well. (One, in fact, was a nice profile, which I would have posted in a heartbeat if it had not contained an unacceptable amount of noise -- the result of the camera's auto setting at 1600 ISO.) This woman is a friend of my wife, and they sometimes go to garage sales together. (Incidentally, my wife is very camera-shy. I did try to take some pictures of her at this gathering, but she would have none of it.) This person, in any event, saw me with my Nikon D50, and approached me with a number of questions about it. As it turned out, she is a shutterbug herself, so we had a good conversation about cameras, after which she agreed to pose for me. I spent a lot of time editing this in Photoshop Elements, and it still is not perfect, but I'm learning. And I liked the final result well enough to post it. (Part of my difficulty here is that I am not accustomed to working with flash, as I prefer to use natural lighting whenever possible.)
