Had a very successful day down at the Kensington Market. It was pedestrian Sunday, meaning the roads were closed and there was far more going on than usual. Anyway, don’t mistake my name for this portrait as to suggest I think I took the “perfect” shot. I’m actually speaking of my model. I forgot to ask her name, I’m afraid. Anyway, me and the gang stopped at this little joint we often end up at called Burger Bar. I’ve shot a few people there in the past, actually. So in walks this lovely young woman and I knew right away she’d make an excellent model. Her dress was the perfect colour for her skin tone and it worked great with the background where she and her friends sat to eat. I was a tad nervous to bother them at the table, but my buddy, Nisarg, encouraged me to go. The lady was kind enough to let me snap her photo. Just by the way she tilted her head I knew right away this wasn’t the first time she’d posed. Oddly, the shot isn’t as sharp as I’d liked. I shot it at 1/30th of a second, which is always fast enough for me to hand hold, but maybe being nervous I shook a little, I don’t know. It’s just not tack sharp, but it’s close and it’s still one of my favourites from today. Also, I notice on my second, older monitor (I have two monitors, one high end and the other an older standard one) the photo doesn’t look at good as on my good monitor. I always worry that y’all might not be seeing the same thing I’m seeing on my primary monitor. Hope it looks as good for you as it does for me.
On a personal note, I’m freakin’ sick again! Picked up a cold, probably from work. Felt okay today but feeling like crap now. Oh well. I don’t think I’m going to go to work tomorrow. I want to see my doctor again but sorting out that referral I mentioned.
