The Doctor Will See You Now



This is Caden. If you follow my 365, I'm sure you'll get to see a lot more of him as well as the rest of my family.


He was playing Doctor (these glasses are part of the kit) and I grabbed him and had him stand near our back door. Using the natural light and my 50mm lens wide open, I was able to capture him in full Doctor mode ;)


Processing: I opened the NEF file in PS CS3 and manually adjusted all of the settings (no presets). Once that was done, I brightened up his eyes and added the letter-boxing.


Typically I don't shoot in RAW...I find it to be a royal pain. I had my D40 tuned to get pretty nice images SOOC, but now with the D90, I've decided to start shooting in RAW + JPEG Normal, which you can't do in the D40. Once I've imported the images, I'll delete the NEF files for images I don't use, which will save a lot of disk space.


Camera: Nikon D90 | Nikkor 50mm(ƒ/1.4G) | ƒ/1.4 | ISO 400 | 1/400s
