Zack is 9 months today! cc please

All shot using my nifty fifty, f2.8, iso 100, ss 125.

I wish I had a better idea of what I was doing in ACR. How does the adjustment brush work? Oh, and I am pretty bad with skin tones, but IRL he is a pale boy.

1.

2.

I really love his expression on this, but am so annoyed at how close to the edge of the bottom frame his foot is and the tie chop, alas, this was an incamera chop.

3.

Not exactly a toy, but the boy loves car keys!
4.

5.

No need to cc on these last 2, but love them as well. Zack is going through the clingy, seperation anxiety phase and cries almost whenever I put him down:

he is so cute! my son is 12 months and I STILL can't get him to stand for pictures (of course, he does have a delay in that area, but at least now he can actually stand holding on to stuff but refuses to do so for pictures).

I only have a couple of minutes, so my comments are brief (sorry about that!)

1. it seems like his torso is better lit than his head - where is the light source? I'm not great with skin tones, but his legs look more pink than they should

2 & 3 - skin tone looks better in 3 (and that's my favorite of the set). the foot at the bottom is fine because it's not chopped at all.

4. love the car keys in the shot, why do babies love them so much? love the lights in his eyes

5. wish he was looking up here ... his face seems too shadowed, and there's just no connection with the camera. trying turning the chair and have him looking over the back of it. Wink

cracking up at the last two, I have pictures like that too.

These are so cute! The focus and exposure look really good. The color is just a bit cool. #3 is my favorite of the bunch.

Very very cute! I love the idea of just the tie! I agree with Amber. I think it could use a little bit of a warm tone.

Thanks! Thankfully I saved all these as psd's to make it easier to go back and try any edits suggested, I will try warming them up a little.

I wish I could claim the tie idea as much own, but I saw it somewhere and thought it was cute, especially as dh wears a suit & tie to work. Zack looks so much like his daddy!

I just love all of these- naked baby with blue tie. He's adorable! I love the last one the best as my older DD is a big thumb-sucker.
