I used the air brush tool at opacity 23% to airbrush some of the shadows off his face. I also brightened it a little.
I have a question for someone who knows what they're doing. I shot this in the evening at f/4.5, 1/30s, 800 ISO and the flash on. The shutter speed wasn't fast enough to capture Eli without blurring a little around his hands but my aperture was as open as it goes (kit lens). I also didn't want to increase the ISO anymore because I didn't want more noise. So if I'm going to shoot kids in the evening, is my only option to get a better lens with lower f stops?
