How to Photograph and Edit Candid Kid Photos

This week I wanted to show you how I captured this candid of a very cute little girl at a bbq. In this video you will hear how I captured this image and see exactly how I tweaked the RAW file from the Nikon D3. I really wanted to make this picture go boom which I think I was able to do.

I was a little concerned with cutting off some of the little girls hair but I don’t think it takes away from the image. What do you think, does cutting her hair off effect this image, please leave a comment.
