My daughter Mila (2) and I were messing around with my camera while she took her bath. Actually, I was kind of experimenting with ISO 1600 and Topaz, seeing as they claim that if you buy their Topaz DeNoise filter you can save yourself thousands because you won’t need a better camera or lens, you can just take noisy pictures and run them throught the DeNoise filter. I’ve been longing for a Canon 5D MkII, but have settled for the DeNoise filter in the meantime… definitely not the same, but also definitely much cheaper!! ( : Anyway, I quite like the effect, although I’m not sure that you can really claim that cheap camera + topaz = expensive camera…

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.

    Love the high-key!! Her eyes are beautiful!!
    PS: if this is what Topaz does at ISO 1600 – I think I gotta try it!!

  • Yes, I think I’m hooked ( : I used adobe camera raw for the processing, some of the colour effects are from that, but the topaz is awesome. Thanks, Vikram.
