Lamplight Portrait


Photo Information
Shot hand-held in extremely low light, with a Takumar 135mm f3.5 set at it's widest aperture, ISO 1600. I hate using flash as I feel it destroys atmosphere.

BTW, what fabulous lenses these old Takumars are.

Seems a very clandestine capture, like she standing in front of prayer candles

Thanks Sean, couldn't actually be further from the truth! She was using her laptop computer; this is where most of the light in the image comes from!

I like the light, your wife looks like she's really concentrating on something.

I like the low-key lighting and her expression. This is a well taken shot.
