Expect The Unexpected (Pun Intended)

This photo of Pam was taken with the intention of being fully lit up...but the flash didn't go. The light on her baby belly was from a difused light source. It came out very dark except for a bright cresent-shaped highlight near her belly button. I nearly deleted it but thought I would try to lighten it up using Lightroom 3. This is the result. I like the grainy effect. Love the romantic mood of it too. Seems peaceful to me.
Pam was a beautiful subject to photograph.


  1. Great lesson here don't be quick to toss stuff. This is something else and so great you took the time to bring it out.

  2. I love the soft light on her belly...and the darkness...nice Dar.
