Let's Hear It For The Boys!


This is my first entry for I Heart Faces and I hope I don't humiliate myself. The theme this week is "Let's Hear It For The Boys!" in honor of Father's Day.

My husband, David Jr., and his father, David Sr., pose for a shot after trimming a plum tree with a chain saw. This photo was taken in April, about a week after I purchased my Nikon d60, and was taken at dusk with no flash. I was pleased with the result, consider the lack of experience and knowledge I had (and still have).

I used PSE 7 to edit and the editing included lightening it up a bit, reducing the noise (it was so dark I had the ISO up to 400), sharpening a bit and cropping it to center them more.

Would you like to see more pictures of boys and fathers? Have a great shot to share? Head over to I Heart Faces and join in the fun!


  1. No way have you humiliated yourself! I am new to I heart Faces too - but I think I am hooked! This is my second week.

    Anyway - enough about me - this shot is great - I can see the love they have for eachother.

    Good luck!


  2. A really lovely portrait and probably a rare thing to of father and son. You have done yourself proud on this first entry! I do have to laugh at your comment about "having the ISO up to 400" as I push mine towards 1600 more times than I care to admit! I do notice a blue cast to their skin tones, a result of the evening light. Otherwise, a wonderful image!

  3. Very nice picture! I think you did a great job!

  4. This is such a great photo! I love the moment captured, and they both look so happy.
