Welcome to the world.
This is Josh, and in this shot he was 6 days old. He has very sharp fingernails and a tendency to scratch his face in his sleep, hence the marks on his nose and cheeks. The photo was shot in RAW, and aside from the addition of the watermark it’s completely untouched – You’ve just got to love natural filtered light 🙂
The shot was taken using A Canon 50mm F/1.8 MkII lens attached to my Canon EOS 400D. The depth of field was obtained by using the full F/1.8 aperture available on this lens and it really helps to soften the shot whilst maintaining the majority of Josh’s face in focus.
