P52 Week 6 - Drink Up

It was definitely tempting to use a picture of Zoe drinking out of her straw cup for this week's challenge, because it's pretty adorable, but like I said last week - I'm trying to avoid just doing snapshots of her.

This picture was taken with a 50mm lens on manual mode f/3.5 and 1/25 sec no flash and was not edited. I'm a real negative Nancy about editing pictures in lightroom which isn't really fair because I edited pictures in the darkroom.

Right after this - I spilled a large amount of wine because pouring with one hand and clicking with the other is not so easy.

  1. Sounds like something I have done. I spilled an entire bottle once, trying to read the label while it was breathing. This photo doesn't need editing... gorgeous.

    1. Thanks so much Nessa. Let's not spill anymore wine!

  2. Beautiful photo. I'm very impressed that you took it while pouring. I am not so coordinated!

  3. This photo is really beautiful! I love the lighting and composition!

  4. Thank you so much Donna, Annette, and Media Goddess. I was definitely surprised I got any in the glass!

  5. I am so torn on the editing in Lightroom factor. I would prefer to get as good as I possibly can without editing, but every once in a while it just needs something more. I doubt I could be that steady pouring and shooting. :)
