There was all kinds of kids and excitement happening around Zander which created a happy face for great portraits. The ISO on this shot is at a high 1600, so noise and grain was unavoidable. I wasn't looking for so much of that in the entire image, although I do like it in the background areas here, his eyes needed to remain tack sharp with a nice tonal range of greys. And thankfully my LR3 repairs MOST anything. It's magic and I love it. What a cutie!
