Playing in M Part II

So here are a few from today. All with the 1.8 35mm still, and SOOC. I think after looking at these compared to some others from yesterday I should stick with an A around 3 to make sure I get enough in focus. At least with how close I generally am to them.

1. f/2.8 1/320 ISO 2000 He didn't look this pink on the camera display. I'll have to play with that later.

2. f/2.8 1/400 ISO 640

3. f/2.8 1/250 ISO 2500 I love her expression here. Smile She was humming and making faces like the Cad-bury bunny. lol

And that's how it's done! Great job taking the CC and applying it! I think your exposure is good, so now I'd move on to watching backgrounds. It's very hard to do that in the house, so just try to remove as much clutter as you can when you know you're going to be snapping. Look at everything in the viewfinder before you take the picture, and then see what you need to move out of the frame. So, take your last one here for example. I would have left the blanket, but taken out the toy on the right side of the frame. The blanket doesn't catch my attention, but the toy does.

Keep up the good work! I can see you really taking off and growing fast!

Backgrounds and white balance are my next focus points. I tried to take some V-day pics this morning, but they weren't cooperating with my props. Sad I'll have to regroup and try something different this afternoon.
