I lurk here quite a bit but really haven't posted too much. I'm hoping to start taking pictures again so will hopefully start posting more. I bought some lights and a backdrop stand in anticipation of DD2s arrival and never got a chance to practice before she was born. Anyway, here's a few I took today. Definitely looking for some cc. I'm not terribly happy with the lighting (it's much harsher than what I want) and am going to try to take some more tomorrow. These are from Canon 50D 17-40Lf4. I think I'm going to try my 50mm 1.4 tomorrow. I was also just shooting in P mode.
Congrats on your new little one! She's beautiful! I'd say you need a tad more light, they seem a little dark. I like #1 the best, but I'd crop it a little differently so her face isn't centered and then try and brighten it up a bit if you use an editing program. I'm not sure if photobucket alters the pics at all, I stick with flickr. #2 I like that we can see her cute outfit, but the angle seems a little awkard to me.
