Congratulations. You have won the “That look you remember best” Challlenge. Don’t take this the wrong way but I had absolutely hoped that someone could challenge this shot and win if for no other reason than to give them a chance. Where there was a fantastic look captured, the shot quality was not as good, this is undeniable, and as good a close portrait as it gets. Well lit, perfect colour and perfectly sharp. I had even thought to find it wanting on the grounds that her expression wasn’t unique enough but even that didn’t work. The little girl is pursing her lips ever so slightly and that lends a certain uncertainty to her look, Wow, this is just such a good shot on so many levels, and what a beautiful little human being. Congratulations

Behind The Lens

Location
In the living room of my home.
Time
I believe it was mid-day, with a bit of sun peeking through the large sliding glass door.
Lighting
It was on the dark side, so I opted to use a flash for the main lighting since there were no lights on and the sun wasn't helping much. More on the flash below.
Equipment
I used my Canon 7D camera with a 50mm Canon EF lens with a plastic body. My flash was a Canon 580EX II, and I went hand-held. With the low light I went with ISO 500, and f/4.0 to get some DOF blurring, and a fairly slow shutter speed using the flash to stop any motion.
Inspiration
My grandchildren spend a lot of time at my home, and are my favorite models. This little girl is one of two girl grandchildren. They are available at a moments notice and always troopers for posing. I wanted to get some candid shots of all three playing with their tablets on a lazy Saturday at our house so I simply walked in and started shooting. I grabbed a hat I recently bought for photo purposes and asked this model if she would stand up and put it on. She immediately put on this huge smile, so I asked her to tone it down a bit. I took a few shots with my flash pointed in various directions, and eventually took this one with the flashing shooting straight up at the ceiling. Of course, I focused on those beautiful little eyes.
Editing
Upon reviewing the shots, this was the clear stand-out shot of the day. I loved that her hair was disheveled, contributing to the title of the photo. I had to do a very little post work, and that consisted of cropping, dodging and burning. I was wonderfully pleased with how all the warm colors melded together with the pursed lips, messy hair, and brown hat to make for my favorite portrait to date.
In my camera bag
I always carry all 7 of my lenses which includes everything you might think you would need. In addition I have a Canon strobe, a glide-one strap, Allen wrench for removing the strap, a remote shutter device, USB to CF card adapter, a Manfrotto carbon fiber travel tripod with grip release head, extra CF memory cards, and lens cleaning materials.
Feedback
Some of best shots are impromptu, and experimenting with light. When I get the kids to cooperate, I shoot many shots never knowing which one will be the magic one. Try to give a little guidance to the kids while letting them be themselves and take advantage of props.
