Photo 52: A Play on Light

Artificial Light | Flash - Week 4

Due to a lingering winter and a very pregnant momma, my 2 year-old and I have been indoors more than usual this past month.  For this final week of artificial light, I used my speedlite to capture a tightly cropped portrait of him.  The grainy effect with its "film noir" feel appeals to me and how, because I was so close to him, the flash created an intense contrast between the foreground and background.  I think I'm also fond of this photo because I can envision how he will look as he grows older.  My little man.
