    I took this shot as an example of human / technology interaction for possible inclusion in a book on the subject...

    strobist: 430ex on full power into reflector to the right of the computer. i wanted it to look as natural as possible.

      I would have dragged the shutter a little longer to get the screen to pop out more in the image.

      yeah, agreed. easily fixed in photoshop this time, but next time i'll know better. thanks for the comment.

      Your welcome... Also if you would like a little more drama "up to you" flag the background or wall from the main light source to make it be a little darker so your subject stands out more from the background. I will post an image so you can see kinda what I mean.

      Kid is being raised right "On a Mac" :)

      I was raised on a mac (Prodigy SE!), good man!

      I like this shot - I don't think the kid really has to 'pop' from the background any more than he/she already does, although a greater depth of field would get the message of 'communication between man and machine' across better, in my opinion. (i.e. getting the computer in focus as well as the kid).

      everyone loves photobooth :-)

      i used the shallow dof because of the natural look of the shot, if the whole thing was in focus it may have just looked like a snapshot taken with a point and shoot.

      thanks guys

      Funny my Son could use a trackpad before he could write !

      haha, thats my cousin, he's not got the hang of the trackpad yet, but he has got the hang of just bashing the keyboard until something happens!

      I have used the photo for non-commercial purposes in a leaflet I have created for an ICT project I am doing it at school, if that is okay?

      I used your photo in a blog post here: (attribution at the bottom of post)
      The blog is only in-design at the moment, however.
      Thanks! : )
