She slept the ENTIRE time! woke up only to eat and then back to sleep. this was my first time shooting wide open (2.8 ) as well. I usually stay at 3.2 or so with my newbies. Would love some cc esp on the BW. I tried making my own action and just wondering if it's ok. TIA
1. f/2.8, 1/125, iso500
the BW conversion:
2.f/2.8, 1/250 iso 500
What sweet pics! Great job shooting wide open! The B&W looks good to me, I don't have any cc on it. I love the second one as well, but there is something about it that makes me feel like it is leaning towards the left. I don' think it really is, but maybe its the black dots on the background that are tricking my eyes. Maybe a tighter crop would work better for my eyes. Great job!
Saw these on facebook...lovely work. I think you could easily bump up the midtones on that bw image. The skin is looking a little muddy to me. I really love #2, but wish I couldn't see the bend in the paper. A closer crop would probably fix this completely.

I agree. These are so adorable and #1 is my favorite. #2 just needs that "bump up" that others mentioned, for the skin. #3 appears to be angled to me too like Jess said....I would also do a tighter crop.

These are great! YOu have great CC already. But I wanted to add that the first one, the wrinkles in the background are distracting to me. I think a tighter crop would be good on the second one, because you can see where the paper isn't flat in the lower left corner. But adorable baby!
I think that more than did it! This set looks AMAZING!!! There may still be a touch of red in #1, but I'm at work on an awful monitor, so take that for what it's worth.
LOVE the b&w!
These are beautiful. I really love #1 as it is such a perfect image of a peaceful, sleeping baby. #3 looks awesome with the slight tilt edit you did.
