Mary’s hat posed a bit of a problem as it shaded her face. I used my camera’s popup flash to light up her face and add catchlights to her eyes.

    She is not an easy shot! Do you ever play with the differnt metering modes? I am thinking that Spot metering, combined with the fill flash would have brightened her up a bit (she looks dark-ish on my calibrated monitor). Overall, a good portrait of a difficult subject. (Still need to pay attention to background objects like that strong vertical lightpole…. 😉 )


    • Sadly, I had already packed away my speedlight. This was a fast grab shot as I had to get back to catch the Magical Express bus for the airport. Wish I had more time. I opened up the shadows as much as I could without blowing out her skin. Definitely needed a better image to start with.

        Yeah, I’ve been there. I swear the camera gods LOVE to put a photo op in front of you when they KNOW you either (a) have NO time or (b) do not have the right equipment! 😀


      • Oh, she was looking at the FastPass photographer here. I didn’t have much say as to her positioning since she was standing next to a guest here (cropped out). Imagine the photo the FP person took with the light pole centered between them.)

    My gracious, this is a glowing bright red & white and super pop Mary Poppins. I love the scepter with a bird head she is holding. Truly, a great portrait for on the go. I really like it.

    She looks beautiful, love the sharp image and I have to keep in mind about the popup flash on a bright sunny day.

    Oh, I love Mary Poppins! And I think your photo is dandy. Very sharp and clear and, like Nye, I am trying to remember about the flash for portraits on sunny days, too.
