WeekNineteen – Author Portrait

6 – 12  May ’12 

Billy the Kid needed a portrait for a poetry booklet project at school.  His poems were about nature and the environment, so an outdoor shot seemed appropriate.

Billy the Author

F-stop                   f/20
Exposure time      1/80 sec
ISO speed            ISO-200
Focal length        50mm
Flash                   Fired

It was a sunny afternoon, so I had the boy pose under the maple tree in the front garden.  The tree, and the wind turbines in the background feature in his poems.  I’ve converted to black and white as the end result was going to the printed B&W for the project.
