    Red face Family session gone wrong! PIC HEAVY!

    This was my first time shooting a small family. I did one large family (15 people or something) but that was totally different. So it was a bit of a disaster. I couldn't figure out why my camera was making me wait in between shots... then I realized 50 shots in, that my on board flash had popped up! AHHH I just about died! By the time I noticed, the light was almost gone. (the location they chose was a shady pit!) So... not enough light to get all three of them in focus. I'm dying for a full frame, I think I have outgrown my camera, at least for outdoor shooting, especially in low light... anyways... I got some cute ones of their LO, and I hope they won't notice that they are a bit oof in the family shots Oh well, I'm just glad I'm not charging yet! CC is very welcome, although I am aware that some are a bit soft

    Here is one where the on board flash fired. I tried to fix it up a little, but meh.

    This one was very blown on her arm and forehead, but I tried to recover, and paint some skin back in. I can totally see it, but I think she might still like it?

    i think they look fine! you are being too hard on yourself! I can't even tell if they are soft or not. even the first one where the flash popped up, that one looks just fine. I am sure they will love them! If you hadn't said anything about painting her skin back in I would not have been able to tell. I'm sure she won't notice though. What camera do you have? My flash doesn't usually pop up if I'm in manual mode. Only does in auto. But I have a canon 40d.

    I have the xsi, I think it was my fault. We were at the pumpkin patch, and we asked a family to take out pic, so i switched it to auto, I think it must have been on auto when I switched it on, and I didn't notice the flash popping up! I blame it on preggo brain!

    hehehe It happens! But I think you did a great job! That location looks really nice for a photo shoot! I wish I could still wear sandals outside. It's freezing cold here and just snowed a wee bit tonight

    wow, snowing already!? It has been great here, but we are about to start the 9ish months of rain, which is really gonna suck! I love the snow, but I think its because I don't get to see it often

    I definately think you're being too hard on yourself. These are awesome. I don't see any softness on the family photos. MAYBE Dad is a hair in 5 and 6, but not enough to be noticable unless you're really looking.

    I love the faded look you have going on with the processing. Care to share your workflow?

    Thanks, I did pull some magenta out of most of these, I guess on those ones I didn't take it quite far enough.

    Ugh, I just wrote a bunch to you and then my browser went back!

    I don't think you can do horribly Lauren, these are great. I might up the exposure of the little guy in #10 just to make it more consistent with the others. #2 is awesome.
