Garrett is hard to get a good picture of. Aside from having to get him to just sit still long enough - you have to get him to focus (ha ha - get it? focus??!!) long enough to get a decent expression. So, when we do get one - we are very excited. The color on this originally was rather harsh because I took it in the fading sunlight - very yellow and bright, making the shadows quite stark. The sepia tone came out rather nice I thought, and toned down the contrast between light and shadow a bit. I know professionals might balk at shadows - but I kind of like the "real" effect of having a bit of shadow in a picture.
