been a while (few for CC)

It's been a while. It's been dreadful here. It's cold, not getting above 40 degrees, so outside is not an option for us. Luckily, it's getting a bit warmer, b/c I want to do Ruthie's 4 year old shoot.

Just a few pics of my kids that I would like cc on. Again, I don't have great editing software, so all I really do is brighten and add a bit of contrast and sharpen. Let me know what you think.

1) 1/320, f/9.0, ISO- 200

2) settings same as above- just different crop.

3) 1/2500, f/5.6, ISO- 400

4)1/100, f/6.3, ISO-200
This one I was just playing around focusing manually. I usually use autofocus, but it wasn't getting what I wanted. Just a fun one.

I love the snow pictures!! The colors just really pop on the snow. I wish there was more light in Randy's eyes, but it's an adorable picture. Can you email me the full SOOC of it? (do you still have my email?) Love your capture of Ruthie, too cute! And neat icicles!!!

I like #1! Very cute pic with the color against the white snow! I much prefer this crop to #2. #3 is a cute capture, but a little centered. #4 cool icicles! You might back up a bit next time and focus in on the ones closest to you.

Gwen- thanks again. I will do my best to send it to you tomorrow. I haven't had time to download them to a cd again. I still need to make some cards, so it might be later this week. I really appreciate it!

Also bumping, hoping for more CC.

Cute snaps. Looks to me like you softened his skin in the first on??? If you did, it looks over done. If not...then that boy has some odly smooth skin. I prefer the 2nd crop.

Nope, no skin smoothing. All I did was brighten ( I always underexpose my pics Sad ) and add some contrats and sharpen for the web.

Thanks ladies. Off to check my email Gwen!
