Photo Shooting – Toddler

This was an old idea I had in my first "beginner in photography" days - I was thinking to shoot toddlers.

Flash / post processing standards / Variations

Since in the near future I am about to shoot during night conditions and I'm required to use the built in flash option, I decided to go out and make some tests.
