    Default Here they are (CC please) REEDITED!!

    All in all, the session went well. It was definitely a learning experience, and I still can't seem to get my whites white. I think my friend will be happy with these--and I know that in a year I'll look back and laugh at this...but that's all part of the experience, right?

    Please give me HHCC. Thanks!

    I decided to change the colors, to make the colors match a little better. Sorry to the gator fans out there.

    Very cute! I like the cake ones the best, as far as brightness and contrast, but the bucket/floor ones look great too, just need a little brightening in the first photo (?)

    don't forget to post your settings
    did you sharpen for web ?

    The cake smash came out great, looks like he had fun. I love the barrel you have for him. Some look like the angle is a tiny bit off which is an easy fix.
    wb is different in a few of these but I'm not calibrated to say which one looks best.

    what a cute kiddo!

    you got some awesome shots. I'd like to see your settings so I can see how you were shooting.

    but it looks like the focus fell on the barrel and the cake on some of the shots, not on his face. I have that problem too, so frustrating!!! but that's not something the mom will notice, just us.

    the collage looks great, I love the top right corner picture, that's a riot!

    Welcome!

    Your WB looks good to me. However it looks like your focus fell a little short in these. Either on his sweater or the barrel.
    Are you dodging the eyes? They look overdone to me.

    What were your settings?

    definitely too low of a ss for a kid that age. that's a lesson I keep learning over and over myself. really, you want at least 1/125. if you don't have noiseware, download the free version and shoot at a higher ISO.

    True, but she's using a speedlight so your ss can be low. Your flash takes care of it. I go as low as 1/60 with my speedlight.

    Yeah, 1/80 is fine with the speedlight. You did a great job.

    I agree that the focus fell on the cake and barrel a few times. That will be more obvious when they are printed so keep that in mind. I would put a reflector on the opposite side of him angled up just slightly. You don't want your light flat but you also don't want the light too dramatic for a shot like this. It would just brighten up his shadowed side a bit.

    In the storyboard his skin looks like it is a tad to contrasty for my taste. I would bring that down a bit.
