There’s much that’s wrong with this picture–focus, grain, etc.–however, I think it’s important for one reason: I got the shot, and it’s pretty much the portrait I wanted. See, I flew to CA for a birthday party and, given the short length of stay (46 hrs.!) and light packing, taking a full DSLR and speedlight just didn’t make sense. Instead, I went with my little Casio Exilm. Sometimes small and simple is better.
While that was a portrait on the cheap, I also took time for a little cheap portraiture:
Oh, the 2nd shot isn’t a Polaroid at all, just a bad PS job. Still I thought it made a nice diptych.
