    Bounced a flash off the ceiling.. makes such a difference.. and for once my daughter did not mind her photo being taken...

    It makes a great difference to direct flash, suddenly everything looks OK.

    Beautiful girl there. Next time ask her to take out the headphones ... :)

    If she is normally wearing headphones then it is an honest, accurate portrait of her to keep them in for her portrait. I like it.

    HI I am new to the forum and am just wondering at about what distance you were from your daughter when you shot this? I am debating on what lens I want to get and it is between the Olympus 45mm and the Panasonic 25mm. Just having a hard time deciding what would be best.
