Jordan night portrait and rollerblader

Night portraits can be tricky. In this shot I used a high-ish ISO setting, wide aperture and flash. Jordan is exposed properly with the flash and some additional rim-lighting from the bridge lights. The background is exposed (rather than going black!) because the combination of high ISO and wide aperture lets enough light in give background detail.

In this shot the 1DIII was set on Servo focussing. In Lightroom I used the direct positive preset and then added a little blur to the background + a vignette to help pop the subject.
