I need to adjust my eyes!
Sorry I have been absent lately. We're getting ready for a huge move, and I haven't had much time to keep up with everything I normally do. I have still be taking a photo a day for my 365 project (in my siggy in case you're interested), but they've definitely been mostly snaps lately.
I'm really trying to work on my brightness issues, and yesterday I had a bit of downtime while the kids were napping. This particular one (from more than a week ago lol!) I was working on directional lighting (see my previous post). I shot from the opposite direction, and I like the results much better.
To double check myself, I did Amber's little trick that she showed me in yet another previous thread, and the skin sample was so close to the white sample. So I brought down the brightness. I think that I need to train my eyes to see it darker, because this just looks so dark to me! I'd love to know what you think.

And just because I've grown to like b&w's a lot lately...
