The Youngest Piano Protege

our young piano protege

Canon 7D, Raw, EF-S17-55mm, 28mm, f/2.8, 1/125, ISO 320

My son took lessons on this piano for nine years. This past week it was moved over to his house. I sure hope Lily wants to take lessons. You can see how much fun she is having. I watched her carefully so she would not pull up on the keys. It is ok to hit down, just not up. Anyway, I love the color of her shirt which makes her rosy cheeks stand out. I did a levels adjustment in Photoshop to brighten up the photo. There was a little noise that I also got rid of. My Canon 7D is such a great camera, after I download in Bridge and go to Camera Raw, those two adjustments are pretty much all I need to make. FYI, the sheet music is Theme From Ice Castles, a very pretty piece of music by Marvin Hamlisch.

    What a cutie!! Your photo is stunning, all the colors compliment each other so well – and you’re right, the pink is a perfect color for her! She looks so happy sitting at the piano! 🙂

    Just fabulous Bridget… I love her expression of joy! A “Kodak” moment.

    Thank you for your nice comments. She is my favorite subject right now and will probably be for some time now!
