    Default RECENTS: Newborns, Infants, & Toddlers :)

    Here are some pictures I have taken recently (some of my friend's newborn) and (yes I can post!) and some of my own kids. (CC welcome!)





    .. and my kids:




    Thanks for looking

    I like the toes pics, and the the last b&ws. Great catchlights in the last ones!

    Here is my cc

    #1 is looking VERY bright. Baby's shoulder and moms hand look blown to me.

    #2 nice clarity, but I'm not loving that expression. I think the baby looks unhappy. Also, he looks like he is sliding out of the frame. I tilt my head way to the right when I look at this pic.

    #3 I wish both feet were in focus, or you could see the toes on both feet.

    #4 very sweet, I like this conversion better.

    #4 really nice, but also looks too bright to me. I can't see a lot of detail in her skin.

    #5 my favorite of this set. I also like this conversion the best. Beautiful kids!

    Thanks for the CD. Yes, you are right. The shoulder does look a tad bright/blown on #1. I'll have to see if I can play around with that conversion/action to fix that. #2, he was unhappy, LOL. He was going through a growth spurt and we couldn't do much with him without him getting upset, hehe.

    Thank you for your input!

    Either way, his mom is probably thrilled with these pics, they are way better than anything I have of my little man as a newborn

    I find that if I do a conversion using actions, it almost always blows out somewhere in the pic. I'm not sure how you did yours, but if it is an action, you could try masking back the bright spots on any contrast/brightness layers.

    I'm really impressed with your newborn shots. Babies are SO HARD!

    1. This is a nice conversion, but the shoulder does look a touch blown. I love the composition though. what a sweet, sweet moment.

    2. sleepy babies are the BEST! LOVE the expression you caught. color looks pretty good too.

    3. great shot of these wrinkly little feet!!!!! I do wish they were both in focus though. The detail on the foot that IS in focus is what really makes the shot for me.

    4. look at those EYES!!!!! great catch lights and nice conversion!

    5. this is my favorite of the set! WOW! those eyes are AMAZING and draw me right into the photo. GREAT GREAT JOB!

    6. this is a very close 2nd for my favorite. Catching the 2 of them together like this is great! Baby's face looks slightly blown, but it doesn't bother me because the eyes look so good.

    I hope we see a steady stream from you ... these are great and your kiddos are just TOO cute!

    Best,
    GiGi

    Can you explain masking? How would I do that?

    Thanks for your comments. The more I look at the feet, the more it's bothering me that both feet aren't in focus. It's great that we have a CC team here because I don't always "see" stuff initially but definitely see things after they are pointed out that I wouldn't have thought of before.

    Now I just wish there was a way to magically refocus on that wrinkly little foot! LOL. I liked #6 the best, but it's just because I am their Mom and it's the first relatively GOOD picture o them together.. and of my oldest who rarely sits still! So it has more sentimental value than aesthetic merit.

    Thanks for your comments and suggestions! I will try and post more (and post more in return). I've gotten back into photography and really want to continue to grow!

    what program are you using to edit? If you use photoshop of any kind you can just search masking on youtube. It's really easy and a very helping tool
