Project 365 : Tag, You’re It!

After missing the last two days of photoposting due to illness, I got back in the swing tonight. Siobhan had a laser tag party tonight, and I took the 7D in for some very unusual shooting.

This is the first time I’ve opened up the high ISO end of the camera, pushing it ISO 12800. The photo for today is completely unretouched, shot in available light (which is a combination of deep darkness and black lights) with my 24-105/4L lens, handheld at 1/25 second. None of the images taken inside the place are what I would call sharp or brilliant, but the fact that I can record an image at all under those conditions really speaks to the sensitivity the 7D has in low-light conditions.

Belle of the Ball

The passing of another milestone — Siobhan got all gussied up today, and was carried off to her prom.

I gotta admit that I’m less than objective, but I thought she looked beautiful in her ball gown. It’s just amazing to see her growing up, and starting to become a young lady!


I don’t usually shoot portraiture. I’m just not comfortable with it, and don’t generally have a good enough grasp of unnatural light to pull it off.

However, Sio’s new look warranted an attempt at doing some shooting. With Karen’s lights and backdrop, I tried to photograph Sio in three different outfits. Now, being fourteen, she wasn’t always the smiling kid for each of the photos — she’s got an image to uphold after all! 🙂 — but I think there are some really nice photos of her out there.

Take a look, and let me know what you think!
