A quick hello - 1 pic

Hi everyone! Just wanted to stop by and show off my silly baby boy! He is 2 months old today and I'm working on his pics from the shoot. Some difficulties are arising though! My transmitter is dead so I'm trying to work from natural light and I struggle in that department greatly! Hoping to run to Walmart and solve that...then try again. In the meantime, here is a sneak peak! I've notice how dead it is here - I hope everyone comes back and starts posting more after it warms up and the holiday craziness has passed! Although I don't have a ton of time to post, I try to pop in and lurk as often as possible Smile

Oh yeah - no CC required Smile

Exposure: 0.008 sec (1/125)

I love the eyes in the 1st one but wondering if you did something around the head? Looks off, can't tell if its just oof or if something was done

ya it's pretty dead these days but I can't say anything I haven't really posted any pics in awhile either, can't seem to find time to pick up my camera haha

2 months already?!?! how can that be???


I love the first shot ... f/1.8 is hard ... I think it might look off to some b/c the ears and most of the head are OOF. But you did an AWESOME job of getting his whole face in focus. I don't think I could do it at 1.8. SWEET! And I love the expression you caught. PRICELESS!

#2 is really cute too, but I think I'd like it a bit more if you were lower so we could see more of his adorable face. You got great light in those lovely eyes, I'd just like to feel more connected to them. KWIM?

TFS! It's good to see you posting!

thanks for the feedback girls Smile

LJ - nope, didn't do anything around the head. just had the camera at 1.8 due to lighting and not wanting to increase my iso any more. I hate shooting that open, but thought I'd give it a go. I don't like the fact that his whole head isn't in focus...guess I should have backed up a bit more?

GiGi - Time flies, doesn't it? Smile As I said above...I hate 1.8! lol That was the FIRST time I've ever gotten both eyes in focus at 1.8!! lol Need more practice that open... And I totally agree with the second needing to be lower and more eye contact. There was one shot where he was looking at me, but it's oof! CRAP! Gonna try again in a bit though

Thanks for even taking the time to look ladies! I love to show off my kiddos Smile

I love that first picture! just too funny! of course, Natalie (2nd youngest) just walked over and said "that baby looks weird". funny kid! but I'm loving that expression. and I am digging the colors of the hat in the second. hope we get to see more from the shoot.
