Just one of my son :)

It has been a long time since I've been able to get a good shot of my son... SMILING! He RUNS from me whenever I take my camera out. This was one of those 'i'll keep shooting until I get a good shot' moments. Lol But I love it! I had a bit of trouble with the white balance though. And wanted to check with you guys. How does it look? Does it look too bright? According to photoshop I could have gone even brighter! I'll have to check my calibration. Thanks! Smile

I don't think its too bright, it looks crisp and his skin tone is great.

I LOVE it! So darling! I think you did great on the white balance. I think you could have gone just a tad brighter, but not much. I also like my pictures bright too though.

thanks gals! here's one more i got that night. I don't like the crop much but it's in camera so couldn't do much about it. My question is though, I had to seriously brighten these up in ACR even though my meter was right smack in the middle. I don't like over exposing though. not much anyway. I was using my speed light. So how would I go about getting it almost perfectly exposed in camera?

I think they are both PERFECT! I love the brightness! I think it's perfect b/c you can tell where his shirt is and where the sheets are. You did a great job and I totally get the running away smiling!
