The little neighbor girl

I am always outside taking pictures of Jazz. Jazz is older than Chyenne so they dont always play alot but she has seen Jazz and I outside taking pics and she will always come by to watch. Yesterday I told her to run home and ask her dad if I can take some photos of her. He said yes so I pulled her inside threw some curls in her hair and off we went. I dont know who was more excited. Me, to capture those freckles or her to have the spotlight be on her for once:)
Here are some images unedited. I went into the studio for 6 hours the other day to learn photoshop! I CAN'T BELIEVE how many steps I try to go thru on my own and he just hits a few buttons and out comes the perfect shot! I will sit and paint an entire shirt to adjust the color and then he shows me the little eye dropper tool!:bangheaddesk:
Anyhow I am waiting till I go in again to edit these shots with him side by side so I will post the edited ones on wednesday:)

Is this pose too much for a little girl or is it okay?

What an adorable girl! I like #2 and #4 a lot. #1 lacks any connection and does nothing for me, and...#3 is definitely not appropriate for a little girl!

Okay thanks thats what I was thinking but I wasnt sure if it was just the overprotective mom in me? I was taking some shots of her and she sat on the ground and said what about one like this? I took it cause I didnt want to hurt her feelings but then the more I was thinking about it I was thinking the pose looked too old! Next time Ill go with my gut! thx:)

With editing, I think 2 & 4 will turn out amazing. Love the look here! Yes, I agree, #3 is not appropriate!

#2 is going to be awesome edited! So cute! She's a beautiful girl. Love the freckles and that long hair!

I'm a big "NO" on #3 too.

I love the ones up close on her face, beautiful girl, can't wait to see the edits. I don't like the pose in #3 not really appropriate for a young girl.

I can't wait to see #2 once you have had a chance to edit it. It's a great shot as-is, but I'll bet with a little post processing this will be one of those jaw dropping shots!

Good on you for giving her a chance to be the star!

TFS,

Thanks everyone. I go in today in the afternoon Sad I wish it was sooner but Jazz has a job we have to go to first. I am going to bring in my computer. (Its one of those desktops where everything is built in the screen so kinda like a large laptop with a cord) I can do all these things when I am at the studio on photoshop but then I get home and some of my stuff is locked. I checked to see if I was working with a locked backround layer(I think i'm saying that right) but i'm not so hopefully he can figure it out for me? I can't wait till I can edit my pictures correctly! OH and I finally get what you girls mean when you say yellow or magenta! I knew, but he fully showed me and it was one of those AHHHHH moments. Now I look back at my pictures and i'm like ewww... what the heck... what was I thinking lol! It's not that bad but I want that eye so badly that can pick things out like that right away. I can't wait to edit #2!

Oh and I started a trend lol! Chyenne got all excited and told her bff and they both came over to see the pictures. The other little girl was looking just wishing it was her so I said go run home have your parents call me lol and I took her out as well. Now hopefully I don't get every kid in the neighborhood knocking on my door but if I do oh well. I love kids and if it can help me learn without my subject being Jazz(nothing against Jazz but I need to direct kids and every kid is not going to just pose cause I am their mom and they know me) Big news about the kid thing when I get home NOPE not pregnant it has to do with photography!!!! gotta run i'm late Smile
