Introducing, my little Colby :)

My little guy arrived, 3 1/2 weeks early Smile Colby Jameson, 7 lb 7 oz. We're home and doing well. I finally had a bit of sun and was able to get started on his newborn pics. Any CC more than welcome, I know I would see any problems eventually and cringe, so might as well point them out to me now! I learned a lot even from just today, and am glad I have as many days as I want to practice with this little guy!

Exposure 0.01 sec (1/100)
Aperture f/1.8 (Learned I either need to back up a bit or close my ap a bit. I think I prefer the whole head to be in focus)
Focal Length 50 mm
ISO Speed 200
Best2

Need to fix the wrinkles.
Yawn

what an adorable little guy you've got there! I absolutely love your conversion on the last one, but that yawn picture sure tugs at my heart strings.

TFS!

And congrats to you and your whole crew!

Congrats! He is PRECIOUS! I think you did a great job. I agree with either backing up or closing your ap just a little so the whole head is in focus. But like you said, it's nice to be able to do more whenever you want!

LOVE the last one, great conversion. But that yawn is just too precious!

Gorgeous! What a perfect little guy Biggrin You are doing a seriously awesome job for this being your first newborn! I love all of them. Congratulations Kristen!

ETA... Did you notice Our boys are almost EXACTLY the same age. Rylan and Jackson are a month apart, and Oliver and Colby are about the same (almost two months maybe). Smile just thought that was neat.

I think these are so sweet!! I would agree about closing down your ap a bit more. Having such a narrow DOF is kind of distracting.

Keep up the practice!! I can't wait to have another baby and free time to actually play around with (I know, I'm out of my mind!)

He's precious Kristen!! I really love the last one, great conversion. I agree that if I was going to shoot close, I would close down some. I wished I live near or you lived here, I am looking for some babies to shoot, lol! Don't forget to capture all the little details, lips, ears, eyelashes and toes!
