Cambodia Portraits

Cambodia Portraits

After over a month of coming back from Cambodia, I have had a chance to reflect on the photography and the images I took. Well over 5000 pictures were taken and I believe I have a few real keepers that stands out. This is one of them.

Taken with the EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS on a 30D (why 30D? I’ll write about it when I recover) this one was a classic case of everything just falling into place. The light and the shadow was just perfect and the look was just sublime. I had to be quick to capture this one as everyone just seems to smile whenever they see a camera pointed at them.

The post processing was tricky as I wanted to make sure I got the details of the wall. A lot of heavy dodging and burning.

  1. just one question, did you take the photo in black and white or colour, if black and white what setting did you use on your camera

  2. Hi Maggie

    As a general rule, I never take anything in digital black and white. Always take the picture in colour and convert to black and white later. You have more flexibility and more options later.
