So Dark

So Dark

I was trying to get the background to go black by selecting a fast shutter speed so ambient light would be underexposed...I didn't succeed. I had the room so dark for this one that I could barely see where to point the focus point. I could see the camera so I put it there! I did not tamper at all with the white balance in Adobe Raw Converter. I think the color is marvelous!

Canon EOS 20D ,Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM

Amazing! This looks totally un-flash like. The teddy bear looks a little depressed, though - how long did he have to sit there, huh? :-D
