This is one of Kate's models, Charlie. A chance, candid shot as she turned around from the bar.

You can see more of Charlie over there:

Taken in very low light conditions during the Flickr meetup at the Alibi Room, Newfarm for the Eyecandy for the Broken Hearted Exhibition (opening).

    By the time I had grabbed the ixus she was gone :( So thank you for recording the moment David! Could you do selective colour on the ribbon in her hair? I'm demanding, aren't I?!

    Shot in B&W Maria :)

    First you kick me and stand on me and now you want selective colour too! :P Yeah I can do that Rachel, but not until I get back home from work tonight.

    Thanks Lara.

    No idea Tim, but I do know that she wasn't too impressed about having her photo taken, or at least seemed that way, as she got up and moved to another room immediately afterwards.

    Thought you might like that Donna ;-) Go check out the sets linked above. Kate has a way with portraiture.

    Boo hoo :( I'm very sorry about that David. I don't even have an alibi... I mean, I hadn't even been drinking, or eating donuts... :( I give you reciprocal rights to return that activity at the next meetup.

    hehehe Nah, just taking the opportunity to have a poke ;-)

    She is incredibly shy David, don't take it personally :)

    IMHO crop needed :oP
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Kate :) I understand, I'm none to keen to be in front of the cameras either.

    Maybe, Martin. I haven't done much to this pic at all, just a quick crop to remove someone's shoulder on the left and improve framing, everything else is as it came out of the camera. I'm not sure it'd take a tighter cropping as the focus wasn't quite as sharp as I'd have liked and I had to use iso1600 just to get the shot, so it's fairly grainy too (which in B&W isn't bad).
