Quick and unplanned. She is a tough one to nail down, always moving. I deliberately didn't sharpen the photo...............

Does she move around so much when sitting around the Christmas tree that you have to use a shutter speed of 1/800 with a 50mm f1.4?

Shooting it with a 6d there probably isn't that much loss shooting at an ISO of 6400 but as an "arm chair quarterback" looking back, it would have been better to pick a lower SS to be able to shoot at a lower ISO.

Now having stated the obvious, this photo needs some time spend on it with Lightroom or a Photoshop type program. Keep the face very warm but try to get the white balance a little closer to normal looking. Probably just lightening her face with the adjustment brush would make it look more natural.

Also I would somewhat lessen all the spots on her forehead, nose, and chin with the spot remover and the adjustment brush. This would be much easier done with Photoshop than Lightroom if you have that option.

I didn't have time to change my settings, She ran to the couch and I said HEY!, She stopped and looked up. I have LR 5.7, still learning it, be nice it had a manual, so all I have is youtube...............

Thanks, I don't think the Image would have come out as good if I was using my 60D in this low light and no flash...............
