I tried clicking on them to get a bigger size, but a bigger size wasn't available. I like to see them really big to make sure they're sharp.
1. Lyric's face and body are exposed nicely, but I think you are very close to loosing definition on the top of her head. You have a little room to take some off the top of the frame to put her eyes in the top third of the frame. I rely a lot on my eye dropper to check skin tones and I could not do it on your pic, but her body looks a tad yellow to me. Face looks good though.
2. Much stronger image IMHO. You have a little room on camera right if you wanted to crop tighter too. The lighting on her head is better here(you could always up the blacks on the bg, but mask back in Lyric), but I only noticed it when standing up and looked down on the image. GREAT expression.
Just remember to try and keep your ss above 125 for lo's and you are good to go. They are beautiful and you have tons of the basics down. I wish I was this far ahead when I was only a few months into things. Sarah, she is SO dang sweet. I am sure you have a blast photographing her. I can NOT get over those cheeks and lips.
Needs more red...I think.

what a cutie!!!! I also have a dark haired baby, so I struggle with the blending of the hair into black backgrounds. but I think you did a good job here. I'm not the best on skintones, I always defer to Amber.

Awesome, thanks guys. I actually reduced the red quite a bit , so i'm thinking i maybe went too far. I also agree with the too yellow comments though. Oh i don't know! I usually don't fuss with skintones, but i wanted to learn. I definitely need to get calibrated!
Okay dokay. Plenty of stuff to try here.
Yay for more Lyric pics!!
I'm not calibrated so can only really say what I see, but I thought she looked just a tad yellow, but that might be due to the lack of red Is this all natural light? I am jeaous! At this time of year, I am lucky if I don't either have to crankmy ISO all the way to 1600 or more, use REALLY slow SS or use my speedlight, which I am crap with, lol!
I love the second one, she really is adorable!
She just gets cuter and cuter! I'm so glad you came and shared some new photos!!!
I'm uncalibrated here at work, but I do see the yellow issues.
Take care and POST MORE OFTEN!!!
Oh my! What a cute little little chunky monkey! You already have gotten some good cc, but I couldnt pass up this post with out commenting on the adorable-ness of the baby!
