#1 I love the color and light and depth. I know the window light is behind her but she still looks good and I see light in her eyes.
(I wish my living room/room where the tree is was open and light the way everyone else's is! LOL someday, when I can repaint and recarpet.....)
#2 great depth and the bokeh is beautifully abstract. Overall it is bit dark.
#3 a little dark but super-cute!!!
#4 ornament looks fine to me; only the bottom edge may be a little cool compared to rest of photo. But hardly worth worrying about. I love macro ornament shots. I did a bunch last year and the year before. Have to do that again
I agree with Tracy's CC. Also that vertical line on the camera right side is distracting. Can it be cloned out?
Ahhh... the upcoming holiday is making me crazy... sorry I haven't CCed.
1 - You have already gotten great CC on this picture. Have you played with your flash setting? Do you use it on manual or ETTL? I agree about it might be being underexposed. I can't comment on color since I am on uncalibrated monitor but he does slightly look yellow.
2 - Lovely photo - for some reason I am wanting to see the top of the tree. I think that would complete this
1. Great expression... I too would have love to see more room on the right side.
2. Since the focus is in such a small flower it sort of get lost. I wish more of the other flowers were also in focus but bokeh is great on this one.
3. Cute snap
4. I would brighten maybe a tad and warm it up. Looks a bit cool.
This is a great picture overall. I would also clone out that line on the right.
Thanks El, yeah in that shot I had my kit lens on (18-55mm) so the aperture couldn't open as far as I usually like. I did take other shots of her with my 50mm for better bokeh, like this----also not an exciting pose, but she was NOT into this at all that day....
I agree with El about the bokeh. But I know how hard that can be. I'm also noticing some blue in it as well. I'm finding it so difficult to use window light with the Christmas tree. I notice that the subject looks blue, while everything the background looks yellow/orange.
El, I think that the setup for this is just slightly off. I know it was impossible with the bed/bench, but rotating him slightly more toward the window would have given you a bit more flattering light on his face. Love the flare though! I can never get nice lens flare.
I'll search through my images from this week. I really don't think I anything but snapshots, though. I've been so busy, and not to mention discouraged with how my indoor shots are coming out, that I just don't have anything.
No window light was used in these; unfortunately there was no available light at the time of day I did these so I used bounced flash. Funny though, I feel that Eva looks very warm in her hair/skin and that if I warmed up the 1st pic any more she would look wrong. I actually think the tree looks too cool in the 1st pic now that I think about that...
El I love the flare too, and the color. I agree about the lighting; also I would like this more with a vertical/closer-up crop of him.
