Napping on Dady's Arm ... (March 2007)

This is a 4 days old little baby girl napping on dad's arm, resting after a very busy shooting session for the family. At that age, babies don't stay awake for very long, I wanted to do a different shot that the classic baby looking into the lens. I wanted something that said "serenity". It was shot in RAW in black and white into the camera. I did set the lighting accordingly so I knew where I was going since the parents wanted a B&W shot. Its is a very simplistic lighting with a large Softbox in studio at close range but I always loved that shot for it peaceful message.

Nikon D200 ,Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D AF
1/50s f/10.0 at 50.0mm iso100 full exif
