Julie (133) - Henry enjoying himself

I stalked Henry for a full ten minutes before I got the shot I wanted. People kept on walking between Henry and my lens! He was with a young lady friend who had just graduated. I was initially attracted by his beanie but captivated quickly by his winning smile. I went up to him after the shot, showed it to him and asked if it was okay to use it. He was pleased.

This settled me down as the pressure of getting the correct exposure was removed.

F6.3, 1/1000, ISO 400, 250mm

It is a bit over-exposed and this could have been corrected by reducing the ISO to even 200 (we were fully outside but it was overcast). Even just closing the aperture down to F7.0 would have given a better exposure.

This is just great, even though he has his eyes closed (which to me is usually totally wrong) it really works. Great lighting as well.
