My boys were feeling sorry for me after a really tough time at work this weekend, so they agreed to a short photo shoot. It's too hot to take them outside like we normally do, so I managed to carve out a little space to set up my backdrop and lights. Unfortunately, Logan just can't keep his eyes open w/ the flash. We tried so many different ways to get him to keep his eyes open, but only managed partial success (half open eyes).
Anyway ... I thought I would share the few salvageable shots here for some CC. I have a thick skin, so comment on anything you care to share! I see so many issues from wb to posing to the fact that most were severely underexposed, but the only way I learn to get better is through these little efforts, so I would appreciate your thoughts on how to improve.
All were shot w/ my 50mm at f/8 (or very close to that) with a SS of 1/200 and an ISO of 500.
I should have opened my aperture up more. At least to around f/4 or so. I honestly was hurrying so much that I just plain forgot to check it.
Anyway ... here are the few I managed to salvage:
and a quick collage ... just because.
Ya know ... I think for our next set, I'll wait for a cold front.
