<<< o >>>happy third birthday 11 comments + add yours

I hadn't intended to post anything until tomorrow, but as it's Tabitha's third birthday today I thought I'd put this one up. It was taken this morning, after which we headed down to the Park Hotel in Dryanovo for a birthday lunch.

Great shot! The one thing that I seem to have problem perfecting is high key portraits. I've read your tutorial and I've made a few tries, but there's just something that's lacking in the post processing. Your high key portraits are just pure perfection, again and again. Nice job!

One day - if your children getting older, they will be thankful for these great captures. I'm sure ^^
