a few more of Orion

As promised, here are a few more of Orion, at 1:12am. I didn't want to keep grandparents waiting. :)











It was a dark, rainy day when I photographed Orion in his home. I try to avoid using flash at all costs, because I love natural light most. But I ended up using it a little bit, when it was just too dark to get adequate lighting. My camera (5D Mark II) rocks and has crazy high ISO, but I always shoot at the lowest ISO possible to avoid grain/noise. Anyway, I was shooting mostly at f/2 the whole shoot, but even near windows I had to put my ISO up to 3200 a couple times that day. Dark day. :)
