Born to Impress the Ladies by circe Born to Impress the Ladies by circe
This is my favorite photo of all the negatives I got from the photo session with the baby. Can you believe we didn't even notice he had winked when I took the photo? It was a pleaseant surprise to see that, although being the only shot, it came out perfect!

I must note that, this was my first experience with people and trying to do portraiture in ways different than the usual. Btw the off-focus was on purpose, I was trying to focus only in the baby's eyes.

Isn't he the cutest??

Born to Impress the Ladies by circe is a devious photograph of a future deviant, i am sure. the wink and the expression of this baby clearly can only mean one thing - just gimme a few years and i'll show you what a true deviant is! (Selected by +olya) ( Featured by olya )

Hahahaha no no no no, nobody did anything he just did that for some reason I have no idea why :D (Big Grin)

Thanks for all the comments, I must mention it wasn't an easy print in the darkroom, too contrasty, I wasted tons of photo paper :o (Eek)

Well, if somebody borrows me 25 bucks I'll get the printing account =P (Razz)
