I was trying my hand at portrait photography, which I seldom do when I took this. My bro was sitting in front of the computer playing one of the several games he plays all the time. Looking at the bright window behind him and all the light coming in through the drapes, I thought it would be a good idea to go for an over-exposure. I had to ask him to sit still for five long seconds though. I had a really hard time not to shake my hand at all during that time. Obviously it took more than one shot to get this and some playing with the long shutter mode to realize that 15 sec was too much and 4 sec was too less.

Exposure f/2.7 5 sec
ISO 400

  3. Hello ,
    Thank you for stopping by my house, I just read your text (translated) I understand you do testing of light and pose with your brother at his console, the goal is to seek novelty, it gives other images.
    Sincerely, soon
