Wanted to just test my settings quickly before a shoot, and accidentally grabbed this sweet moment. :) Masked out the couch and room in the original in post to make it a portrait.

Behind The Lens

My daughter was sitting on the couch with our dog near my office at the time.
This was in the evening, after dinner, likely around 6pm.
It was simply indoor fluorescent lighting.
Nikon D700, AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D
Nothing. It was a total accident. I was messing with my menu and settings, and held my camera up to take a shot and test it, and ended up with a moment I knew I wanted to keep.
Since I didn't mean to take the shot, there was no removing distractions in camera. The original image showed the couch and room. So I took this image into photoshop, masked out the background, then added a radial gradient and textured backdrop. I cleaned up flyaways, sharpened, and smoothed things out, and I also painted a couple of her nails with a brush as her nail polish was chipped and off two nails altogether.
In my camera bag
Wide Angle 12-24 4, Normal Prime 50mm 1.4D, Macro Prime 105mm 2.8, Telezoom 70-300 4-5.6, a continuous LED for my hotshoe, extra batteries, charger, sd cards, and I have my tripod attached to the side most times.
Connection is so important in photography. Whether you accidentally catch it without time to remove distractions, or you catch connection intentionally but don't like something else in the shot you took, don't just automatically toss it. Give it a chance in Photoshop and see if you can save the moment with a clean edit. You just never know. We're ordering this in a large print for the house, a total surprise shot.
