A Mistake but I Like It

This shot was taken when I was getting my flash settings worked out and is probably one that should be deleted, but I like it.  The darkness of the parents with the light only hitting the baby seems to me to be an accurate representation of how focused they are on their precious new miracle.  I love the gesture of the mother's hand too.  So while it is not the standard well-lit family portrait, to me it speaks volumes more.


  1. Whether an accident or one that you spent hours setting up, this photo has impact. The composition and lighting makes you look at the star. I believe that I would push it towards being totally about emotion and therefore convert it to a black and white photo. Nice work.

  2. Cindi, This really is a nice shot, accident or not! Thanks for all of your hard work. Mary
