Meet My Mom

In the past few weeks, I've been making some portraits. Some of them in a studio, others 'on location'.
I will post some of the results here and I'll start with a portrait of my mother.

These photographs are shot in her 'study room'; my mom loves painting and calligraphy (she's pretty good at it) and I wanted to express this in my photographs.

Just a pity that she's holding the pen a little bit to high

The photos have been taken with ambient light (I don't like to use flash for location-portraits). I've used a Nikon D200 with a 50mm f/1.8 lens mounted on it. Since there was not too much light available, I've choosen a small aparture number and a high ISO setting. (The EXIF information is available in the picture; you can easily view it using Opanda IEXIF Viewer"). Despite the high ISO setting, I've to admit that I'm pleasantly surprised with the noise levels in these photo's.

Thanks :)
And thanks for that link to 'Photo Info'. Right now, I'm using Opanda's IExif Viewer to view exif-information, but afaik the 'opanda-tool' doesn't allow me to change or delete the information. thx for the tip
