Archive photo of the day: Natural smile

I'm not sure how I missed posting this one back in August when I took it, but it was one of my favorites at the time!

This young fellow was one of the attendees at the annual Vacation Bible School at our church, and the son of a good friend. It was right after I'd upgraded to my new Canon EOS 5D Mark III, so I was still playing around with its capabilities for taking great photos in low natural light -- and this is a fantastic demonstration of that capacity. f/5.6 at 135 mm and ISO 5000, and a sharp image at 1/160 of a second -- fantastic! I especially love the beautiful shaded tones around the face and the catchlights in the eyes. Oh, and the cute smile doesn't hurt, either!
