Default Portrait of a Mennonite Woman

Too little available light and I couldn't use a flash for obvious reasons. Also, a bit blurry since I had to use a slow shutter speed and forgot to bump up my ISO setting...geeeesh!!

Under that circumstances it's a pretty good shot. I like it.

I could kick myself for not being better prepared to take this shot. A higher ISO would have made all the difference. There's always next time I guess.

good shot though. i like the shadow and contrast. sometimes its what you can't see that makes it cool. play with it a little.

it was sort of a dangerous situation. bumping up the iso and you might have tempted to go a little too far and blow out the window highlights.

bracket bracket bracket when you can. its not like you have only 36 shots to a roll now.

Thanks, SJMS. I'm glad this shot turned out as good as it did at low light setting (ISO 100). I took it with my 7Hi and with all my complaining about "Noise", it really wasnt that bad. I printed out a 5 x 7 print and it looks fantastic. There's a bit of Noise, but I think it adds to the shot not detracts from it.

Very nice photo. Sometimes it is not the perfect picture but the subject. This time I think you caught the subject and produce a great photo.

At the size shown here it's a beautiful Rembrant/Rubins type portrait.

You have a real keeper there!
BTW, what are the names?, I'm 1700's Amish/Mennonite myself. If they are relatives would love to include in the genealogy... Email me please..
