    Default Baby Shoot, c/c *Added 2nd Crop*

    So if you remember, I was having issues with my 50D. Well I think it was wonky cuz I took it back and got a new one and LOVE it. I mean, LOVE it!!! I did the shoot with the 4 month old little girl and these were my two favorite shots. It was my first time really throwing it out there to do indoor natural lighting, so let me know what you think please!

    ISO 250, f5, 1/60
    1.

    ISO 250, f5, 1/100
    2.

    I know composition is pretty centered and standard, what would you do differently? And I know my watermark is heavy, but I've had people printing them and framing them WITH my watermark because it was light enough that it didn't bug them...

    Thank you

    haha well that wm should stop that sorry it had to come to this though

    Do you have much room around to crop? the first is cute and it looks like she's flying, probably take it back a bit so you have some space on the left
    Personally not a huge fan of the second, I know its a bumbo seat so she can sit but the big black thing in between her legs just looks distracting to me. Not sure but maybe this is a shot for an upper body crop??

    She has some gorgeous blue eyes!
    1) I agree, she looks like she is flying! Randy does the SAME thing, so I understand how you got that pic. Is that a camera crop, or did you crop it?
    2) I agree with the pp on this one. Try an upperbody crop b/c the seat is distracting to me. This one is my fav though!

    YAY for fixing the camera problem!

    Yea, the bumbo one, I feel the same, but I just *love* her little expression! Both have room, the first has less than the second, but neither are in-camera crops. For the first, just take it back in general?

    Yea my watermark is a picture in itself, so annoying.

    I feel the same about #2. I can't wait to see the other crops! Her expression is priceless!

    I wouldn't worry about your watermark. You had to do what you had to do. That sucks though.

    she's too cute!!! something seems off in her skin tones ... my gut says a bit too much magenta, but I'm not great at eyeballing that.

    I'd totally crop that second one and just do portrait crop of her face. that smile is priceless!

    I really like the first one! I would have liked to see her other leg/foot though.

    The second one doesn't do much for me. I don't like seeing the middle of the bumbo come up between her legs. But her expression is too cute to not use...so I'd like to see it cropped too!

    glad your new body is working out for you ... and you really have it working here!

    I don't have anything more to add, but I hope you'll share a new crop of the 2nd one if you get the chance. That smile is just TOO sweet.

    TFS,

    I like the crop ... but I'd like it more if we didn't see any of her hand. what about an 8x10 aspect ratio for the crop?
