This shot was an entry to a weekly assignment on fredmiranda.com. The challenge was "Through a Childs Eye". I used my 10 year old daughter as the model. In order to get the shot to work, I needed to use only the light from the Christmas tree lights to light her face. This resulted in a 3 second exposure, which made it almost impossible to get a clear image due to even tiny motions of her head. After trying over 40 shots, I used a scarf to tie her head to the back of the high-back chair we were using. Thank God she did not call child services. In any event, the shot won the assignment, my first photography contest win.
