This was my first time using a lens other than the one that comes with the camera when you buy it. :P
The awesome thing about this picture is that my friend, Rana (a fellow photographer), said that no one had ever taken a really good picture of him. So, he was quite thrilled when I asked him to be the subject of the shot. After I uploaded the picture to my computer and had finished editing, he was so delighted and pleased.
I think that's what makes photography worth it... the good that you can do through it.
I like this shot because it depicts deep, inner joy. The cool thing is, there was deep, inner joy on both ends throughout the photoshoot.
