J is the son of my sister's friend and he agreed to be my model recently. He did such a great job! We met at the park and went on a hike down the nature trail where I learned how to look for moss on the trees so I could find my way out if I ever got lost. He is very smart and interested in all things science or sport-related, especially soccer and basketball. It was so nice to get a chance to photograph a child who stayed where I directed him, posed fabulously, and had a great attitude while doing so. I used a softbox and sometimes another flash with the juice-Fong, and I think both were used here as it was almost 5 pm with the light fading. This was my first shoot with my new D700 with the full frame sensor and I was very surprised to see more depth of field at various apertures than when I use that same lens on my D200 with the smaller sensor. The reason for this was explained to me, but didn't quite compute so I have to just believe it works that way.
Nikon D700, 70 -200mm VR lens at f4 and 1/320th, ISO 200.
