my son finds himself in this tub everyday :)

each day, there is a remarkable excitement he shows, as if its the first time altogether :)

with him in the tub and myself hovering around with the camera, his mom left for a while :) amaar has always had a good time in water :) he loves to play and play :) and we keep adding more toys to his tub :)

using the 50mm lens on my new D90, i was using a preset speed of 1/60s with an aperture of 1,8 :) and while his hands exhibit some motion blur, i am glad his face doesn't :)

applied a film filter to it which balances out the contrast and saturation and takes care of the colorcast as well :)

ISO 640 :) this camera is pretty decent all the way till ISO3200 :) i reserve that for black and whites mostly :)

thanks for viewing :) let's see what you think :)

apart from the "nude-part" its a very well taken photo :)

the twin shadow and catch-light tell the light source too, I certainly like that u didn't mess up to focus his face.

In my opinion the motion blur of his hand and book(sort of) looks good and brings life supporting his expressions :)

m glad u r enjoying the NEW TOY shoy :P


salaam muhsin bhai,

i didn't really notice the two light sources til i read jz's comments. i'm scratching my head n trying to understand it. i don't know why jz brought up the 'nude-part'. give the kid a break, he's just a baby :) its quite odd he enjoys water unlike other kids.
