Just had to share my favorite from today. I've only done ACR edits, I have another shoot before this to edit before I can do a full edit of these. I wish I had thought of the lollipop earlier, she didn't want to stay still for me at all! This was near the end (almost 90 minutes into the shoot) when I had the lollipop idea. Sorry it's so big, the medium version on Flickr was too small.
it's an adorable shot. Only one thing - when you're doing black on black, you really need a kicker light behind the subject. Your dress is blending into the background. I'd suggest a dark gray bg for such situations if you don't have another light.
Cute...last year for dd, I used one of those big colorful lolly pops for her christmas photo. It worked wonders for making her happy, but it was a tad messy, so I had to shoot quick! This one is adorable! Can't wait to see more!
