    Default One year olds are HARD! CC please! - new edit post #11

    Hopefully some of you remember me. I have not posted in a few months...I've kind of been in a winter slump I guess!

    This little cutie wanted NOTHING to do with having her picture taken! I'm sure it didn't help that it was naptime, but wow. This was just way harder than I thought it would be! This is the first one I sat down to edit. I would really appreciate it if you have any input on her skin tone. I am so bad at recognizing proper skin tones! I know the lack of eye contact stinks. I would welcome any other cc you may have before I edit the rest!

    Oh, and if you have any input on the lighting that would also be great. I'm still trying to figure out how to best utilize my big living room window. Is this too flat?

    ETA: I forget the settings every stinkin' time! f/2, 1/320, ISO 200

    Hmmm I think her skin tone looks good, but I am no good at recognizing tonal issues either. I think the dress looks too big on her or something, so that's throwing me off a little bit. Otherwise I think it's a great shot! I'd love to see more when you get them ready!

    Her skin tone looks yellow/dull. And yes your lighting looks flat (which I am guilty off too).

    Oh, man!!! I even remembered to use my RMI card this time, too. Darn it! LOL. I'll play around this afternoon and see what I can come up with. Thanks!

    I'm at work, so I can't comment much on color. Lighting doesn't look flat to me, but again ... I'm at work, so take it w/ a grain of salt.

    Focus, exposure, and composition look great though! I would never have known you had to work hard for the shot. She looks ADORABLE!

    Glad to have you back!

    I love the focus & clarity, but I agree her skin does look yellowish & flat. Her eyes do look awesome though. She/her eyes are not quite in the "rule of thirds" but that's not a biggie.

    Tara, I just used a roll of seamless and threw it up in my living room. I don't even have a stand yet. Is that what you mean? And my light was from a big window. I had the seamless set up at a 45 degree angle from the window. I also used a reflector because I was worried I wouldn't have enough light since there was no sun yesterday. I guess I probably shouldn't have done that! Or at least I should have tried it without the reflector first. I was just so darn proud of myself for actually remembering to get it out! LOL!

    Amy, thanks for pointing out the ROT. I think I had it with her eyes along the top third and then I realized she was a bit crooked so I bet that happened when I straightened it. I will see if I can go back and get that a bit closer to the ROT, but I guess if you don't think it's too bad I would rather have it this way than crooked!

    Okay, so I know how to fix the yellow. Well, I should say, I technically know how to go about fixing the yellow. Whether or not I can actually fix it is another story! But what about the dullness? Is that because of the lighting being flat? Or is that a color issue? Is there a way to help that with pp? I'm using LR3.

    How cute!!!! The tutu dress is a bit full on such a little girl for my taste, she just seems to be lost in the tulle. But I think it's beautiful colors and goes very well with the dark gray backdrop. The lighting is a little tricky. I see where El is saying it's kind of flat. You don't really see any definition in girl's face. But, it is beauitful light and I think it doesn't distract from the picture.

    Be happy with this! I can hardly get 1 good shot of my 2 year old, so getting that one shot is just enough to make my day

    Yes, that is exactly what I was asking! I am always looking for different ways to try to set up. I have yet to find one that I really like, so I like ot see how others do it and "steal" tips from them! Thanks!
