Studio -Missouri USA

I dressed my son up as a nerd (but not to much). And told him to act silly. He's only four and I thought he did a great job (say’s the proud mother LOL.)
I put a light on the floor for the back light and lights to the left and right front. Pretty standard. I'm hoping people can the see the pocket protector I created, unfortunately the calculator covered it up for this shot, but this one was still the best.
I think it’s a cute way to interpret the screen name “smartypants” because ALL kids are “smartypants”!

PP: raw conversion, curves, levels, noise ninja, a touch of color balance, crop and save for web.

Hello Andrea,
Very cute, there a just a few very minor things here. His forehead area (right side) has a slight hotspot & down on the bottom (left)the grayish line there is a bit of a distraction. On a personal level I would have rather him be looking at the cal rather then into lens. Other then that, love the image great job !!!.
