I was just impressed with the look of this, not sure why.

It was just so natural, and easy and came out great with the Sennheisers. Not bad at all for a impromptu low-ish light kids shot.

Nikon D7000
35mm 1.8 lens
f2.5
ISO 1600
1/25 sec

No flash

Hi athomsfere,

A natural shot, very nice What caught my attention is the orange streak on the tip of his nose and the left cheek and forehead. I don’t shoot indoors but I get the same streaking on fair skinned people in bight sun.. I have not found a solution for this for the D7000 only a few vague suggestions with most saying check the WB. After a few tests with WB, I've found auto WB on the D7000 to produce the best results.

I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on this.

Cheers

Ah, yes. I do tend to stick with auto WB unless there is a ver specific reason I need better consitency between shots. Otherwise, whether its my shooting style or I am fortunate I do not generally see enough color swing to worry about hard setting or locking the WB.

If I had forced the meter off his nose, it might have reduced that too (blown out). What makes this a hard shot is that the light that has blown out his nose and cheek is a recessed flood light (75w equivalent Halogen). The blue on his right cheek is monitor glow, and the ambient light is soft white while the directional from above is closer to a daylight...

nice I enjoy seeing kids photos, mine make me laugh all the time. For me the main thing that stands out is that there appears to be motion blur.
Maybe try iso 3200.
