Outdoor Night Portrait

Had the polarizing filter on the lens from earlier afternoon shots; was too lazy to remove it. Keeping it on certainly darkened the outcome by 1-2/3 stops on the exposure settings.  I used the creative setting for “Night Portraits” and the pop-up flash was used without a diffuser. This was also a  test to see if we could make a nice bokeh effect (the pleasant soft blur behind subject) with some lights that were already placed on a wall behind the subject.  A tripod would have kept my hand steadier. Sometimes, in a portrait, your subject is not smiling.
