Photo by my lovely wife (click either pic to enlarge).
There are several things going on in this picture.
- Benjamin is in the hallway, and the light is shining from the bathroom where I lie quite uncomfortably under the sink installing the new faucet (previous post covers that),
- he is dressed as a cowboy in Christmas pajama pants and my hiking boots (the latter of which I had used just about an hour before on Benjamin’s first time sledding in the spring snow),
- he’s holding his way cool six-shooter Nerf dart gun that we threw away weeks later, after he threw it in anger, and
- the flash didn’t fire when my wife took the picture.
That last point was the one I came out here to make. I like the motion effect it caused, but it was a bit too dark and the white balance was way off. I don’t know that I improved it any, but it was fun to play with it.
