friendly little girl

Seyifunmi was such a friendly girl... the day she met us, she jumped into our car and said she was going to go everywhere with us! It was hard convincing her to get back in her mom's car :) Imagine how tough it must've been for me to get her to stay in one position for this shot!

too dark, raise the exposure slightly
abi u no get photoshop
framing and composition is a bit off
I am being nice

Lagbaja has spoken
Abisola Fatokun: thanks Lagbaja. I think maybe the problem with your inability to see her
is down to calibration issues. When I look at the photo on a mac - my primary computer - it looks fine
but on a PC it looks quite faint... Thanks for your constructive criticism. Got any revommendations on good reference on framing?
toook me a while to notice the eyes, I will belive you that it is a friendly ittle girl, can't see that, is the darkness on purpose?
Abisola Fatokun: thanks Patrick. The darkness is dsliberate as its a depiction of just how difficult it was to see anything that night in Lagos as the low voltage supply from the power company as well as the use of low energy bulbs made the illumination quite challenging.
She was a very friendly girl!

subtly powerful---the tiny face in the dark searching.

don't change a thing.
Abisola Fatokun: Thanks for dropping by Kathryn. Tis a privilege smile
There's desperation in those eyes: why did she feel safer with you than getting back into her mum's car?
Abisola Fatokun: Simple answer to that. She's an only child and gets extremely bored with no one to play with... No surprise that when we turn up she'll not pass up the opportunity to play with us.
Oh nice man! You learn really quickly.
Abisola Fatokun: ah thanks man! You teach very well :p
