Behind The Lens

Location
I took this at the cute little guys home :)
Time
Around 11:00.
Lighting
This was all natural light with a reflector and the window above and behind the baby.
Equipment
I took this with a Nikon D700, 24-70 f/2.8 lens handheld.
Inspiration
I don't typically shoot a lot of babies, but this was for a friend. When she smiled, I was happy to capture it.
Editing
Honestly, I did very little post processing... just adjusted the contrast a bit.
In my camera bag
I have 2 Nikon D700's, a Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8, a Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8, A Nikon 60mm f/2.8, a Nikon 16mm f/2.8 fisheye, a Nikon 50mm f/1.8, and lastly, my hobby lens a Nikon 300mm f/2.8
Feedback
Honestly, it was a rather simple shot... lots and lots of patience with newborns :)
