My nephew is showing her sisters some interesting websites on a laptop in the kitchen. Shot in early AM, kitchen full of clutter and distractions.

|Taken:||Sunday, 29th March, 2009|
|Focal length:||24 mm|
|Shutter speed:||1/200 sec|
|Notes:||Shot at f/11 due to the bright fixed output of the mini flash beside the laptop. On camera flash at 1/4 power on manual mode enough to trigger the mini flash. f/11 rendered cluttered kitchen background in sharp focus. Processed in b/w in lightroom then vignetted and touched up in Photoshop to take out distractions.|
