Hello I tried here to take shots for a newborn using window daylight, sadly I've failed somehow because of the low light conditions and the small space. This is what I've managed to get it clean. Hope you like it. *************************** iso : 200 shutter speed : 1/30 Lens Aperture : F3.5 Focal Length : 105mm Lens : Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS USM Light Source : daylight programs edited with : Photoshop Cs5
