Portrait of a young girl, Bonarua Is, Brumer Islands, Papua New Guinea
The Brumer Islands are a rarely visited group of islands off the south eastern tip of Papua New Guinea. You can find their location on the internet, but that's about it. The people live a bare subsistence living, growing what they can, with a supply ship calling every few weeks. They don't have electricity, so no worries about wires in the photos :-)
The first challenge was taking photos in the rain - holding my umbrella with one hand and my camera with the other. Because there wasn't a lot of light, I used flash fill.
More photos from this location can be found here, with more photos of the people of the Brumer Islands to come in the next couple of days: http://goo.gl/v8VhI
105 mm, 1/125sec, f 7.1, ISO 640, flash fill
Addendum: To my eye the skin tones in the original were slightly too yellow, so I tweeked them a bit and have substituted for the file that was here earlier in in the day.
