    Default Meet my precious nephew: Eli (+ a flower photo)

    CC on these please. I do NOT claim to be a newborn photographer by any means. I wanted to give it a try. I was in CRAMPED quarters. He was on bed or floor and I was on the floor laying down on my stomach, under a desk! There was no light, so I had to use my speedlight. What's your thoughts? I try to go for a different edit sometimes with newborns. I like this look. IT might not be for everyone, but the ones with him in the hat aren't a clean edit, just my taste.

    4. This was taken last night with ZERO light left. I upped my ISO and gave it a shot. I added a texture. What's your thoughts?

    Lovely, Sadie! Your nephew is adorable!

    I'm not sure if it's the processing or not, but #1 feels a bit soft to me... though #3 looks a little sharper with the same processing, so perhaps it's the image. I like #3 best anyway, as the comp on #1 is a bit weaker. Love the gorgeous catchlights in #2!!

    The flower is so pretty! I would have liked a little more space at the bottom of the photo, but it's beautiful and the texturing is very nice.

    Under a desk--LOL!
    Ditto the CC Tracy gave. But overall I like all these.

    Not going to add CC since I am on a laptop which has HORRIBLE colour levels. Just have to say your nephew is adorable.

    I agree with Tracy's cc. Congrats on your nephew!

    I would like to see the flower one cropped in a little more. Great job with such little light!

    I really like #2. I think it's the awesome catchlights. Between 1&3, I think the comp is stronger on 3. I see where you were going with your pp, but I'm not sure I like it. I'll look once and think it's ok, then the next time I look, I don't like it as much. I think perhaps what's bugging me is the red. Red naturally advances, so I'm wanting it to really pop out. And the misty feel you have about the photo is muting the red. I think I would absolutely love the pp if he was in a different color hat. If that makes any sense? I would also have liked to see a little more at the bottom of the crop in #4. Loving the texture. It puts me in mind of a greeting card, like for a mother's/grandmother's birthday or something.
