How I Took That Shot – Fidelma Read

Fidelma Read tied for first place in our recent 'Reflections' competition and eventually took second after a count-back of 'possible scores' was done. Her touching shot was all the more remarkable when she revealed that she had taken it with her iPhone!


"We were away for the weekend and my three-years-old daughter, Ryana, had her face painted a few hours previously so it was quite smudged at this stage. Back at the house, she wanted to go outside to see the ducks but it was raining. She put her face up to the window to look out at the rain, and I could just see the photo in front of me. As luck would have it, I had my iPhone in my hand so managed to capture the moment. Of course I was wishing I'd had my Canon in my hand at the time, but the phone didn't do a bad job and the moment wasn't lost."
