Wow Janet, what a great shot. The expression, the light, the muted's a classic.
21 LindaY (Linda Y)   (2/23/2005 10:09:54 PM)
Janet, this is so beautiful! The little girl looks like an angel. The photo has a wonderful timeless quality. The thing that I find most striking about this is the lighting. It has just the faintest muted rosy hue to it that is so flattering to the delicate colors of this little girl. I noticed that you said that you used natural window light. If you don't mind my asking, what time of day was this taken? Was the light filtered by curtains? I am assuming from the softness of the lighting that the light was not shining directly into the windows.
22 Roger Ranney (Don't block the shot)   (2/23/2005 11:33:56 PM)
So much to learn. Wonderful Janet!

52 Janet Jonas   (2/24/2005 8:59:35 PM)
Wow, I am amazed by the response to my image. Hannah is one of the most beautiful children I have ever photographed. She has a presence that is hard to ignore. I am very flattered by the wonderful votes, and more importantly the comments. The photo shoot started as collaboration between Hannah and me to make a get well card for her grandfather who was undergoing cancer surgery. I took several of her in a pose that made it appear she was praying. When I told her she looked just like an angel she told me in no uncertain terms that she wasn't an angel as she had no wings. I pulled some I had out of my props trunk and put them on her. She then became an angel and after that pose we took this one, which was the last of the bunch.
53 Janet Jonas   (2/24/2005 9:01:21 PM)
She was getting a little squirmy and this dress that she got out of my props trunk she insisted looked like a princess dress. Much too big for her but I was not going to argue with her. That it why it falls off her shoulder like that. When I saw it through the viewfinder I thought it had a simple elegance to it so I took it. I have a terrible habit of in camera cropping too close and this is a full frame shot so... Her hair is a little messy but if I pulled out a comb at that point in the shoot she would have protested and I might never have got the shot. If I were to shoot this again I would try to improve on it as I don't think there is such thing as a perfect shot. Maybe pull out a bit more and include the rest of her right shoulder and her little hands. But alas that would have been a different photograph, and maybe loose the charm this one seems to have.
54 Bill Taylor   (2/24/2005 10:11:41 PM)
Lovely , and the dress does her well , a Princess Indeed ..
55 btezra   (2/24/2005 10:37:07 PM)
~I am glad you relied on the spontaneous, the comb would have lost the moment...and it is that moment that deseves praise, too many images get lost in mediocrity because of planning, production and post processing out the whazoooooo (anyone can Photoshop) the content and the simplicity drive the impact and that is exactly why this image deserves the limelight~
56 dido   (2/25/2005 12:09:49 AM)
Ditto all of the above. AS with all good portraiture, this is more than merely an exercise in technique. This is superb. (minor nit: bright spot here . Nothing serious (9.99)

Wonderful light and expression! What a darling child!
62 Nannini Van Gestel   (3/2/2005 3:32:54 PM)
Just wonderful!
Very angelic!
63 Kris Bass (peter pan is so real ))   (3/5/2005 1:27:49 PM)
I have to agree with craig about the comb. Children in my personal opinion look 100% natural when they are slightly untidy unless they just got out of the bath. I also like the shoulder of the dress slightly falling off as it reminds me of my daughters trying to play dress up and wanting to be grown up all too quickly. I no longer have small children and often think back to those days and how quickly they seem to grow up and miss that. Nice share
