Studio Setup

Using a single focus point, I focused on her eyes at f/2.0 because I wanted a shallow depth of field. I selected ISO 2000 because I wanted a fast shutter speed to insure a sharp image (babies do not sit still).

Below is the original and edited versions, color and light adjustments were accomplished in Lightroom, slight skin softening in Photoshop.
