My niece, future police officer

Discussion in 'People' started by Frits, Oct 5, 2008.

  1. My niece is in college, training to be a police officer.
    During this period she is also involved in the Canadian army, where she spent the summer in a military police program.
    She is currently kept very busy with both. A great kid who knows what she wants.

    She stayed with us this weekend and I wanted to take a few shots. I would have liked to set up some lights and a background, but for today a quick few shots in our kitchen will do.

    D2x, Nikon AF-S 200mm f/2.0 VR (available light only)

    original.
     
  2. Excellent picture Frits. Accentuates her eyes.

    Very nice Frits. If she needs any advise, drop me a PM.
     
  4. Nice shot Fritz. Only thing I notice is an overall softness to the image that can easily be fixed with a little Smart Sharpen or USM.
     
  5. Good observation :smile:
    Some operator error involved here:
    1) shot at fairly wide aperture, so very shallow DOF (that by itself is OK, if desired)
    2) but, add to that that I was sloppy with my focusing - focused on her right eye. So the already very shallow in-focus slice is in the wrong place...

    But the somewhat technically flawed image still looks fine and prints beautifully :smile:

    And since she is so "present" in the image you could easily remove the stuff in the back and even if you did a bad job of it no one would notice.

    And yes love the eyes.
     
  7. Nice picture and lovely young lady. I can't wait to get a speeding ticket from her :tongue:

    Nice Portrait!
     
  9. Very nice Frits. It makes me ask one question....... if you shoot a portrait like that with your 200, on a D2x......... just how big is your kitchen? :wink:
     
  10. Lovely Frits, both your niece and this shot! :smile:
     
  11. Great shot Frits. She's got great eyes.
     
  12. Beautiful....both the photo and your neice. This should be a poster photo for the Canadian Military.
     
  13. Yep, she's stunning and you photographed her well. :smile:
