Pepsi Trade

Yesterday, my sister and her fiance had an engagement party.  It was more of a Hmong “traditional” well-wishing-string-tying-ceremony but it would be considered an engagement in the western world.  I took over 200 photos, and hope to go through all of them soon, but for now there was this one photo that really stood out.  It’s of my daughter with her pouty expression.  She had wanted me to get her a Pepsi from a cooler just outside the door and I asked her to get it herself.  She refused yet begged me to get it for her so I said, “How about we trade?  I get you the Pepsi and you stay there (by the door), so I can get a photo of you?”  Siblings and friends who were listening to us laughed and that got her upset.  She said, “No.  I want the Pepsi,” but when I gave her the Pepsi, she actually stood there for a few seconds for me to take the photo.  I think I see a little smile in that pout.

Here is the RAW file as is and when I edited in ACR (Adobe Camera Raw).  The photo above was then edited in Photoshop CS6.
