  • You knew it was coming!

    Hi All,

    Finally managed to get round to taking a few shots today.

    Critique very welcome as always. I am pretty pleased with it, but what do you think, would you do anything different?

        A superb shot Ben & what a beautiful rosebud mouth Elise has! The only suggestion I would have is that considering the light source, I would've expected the Right side to be a little lighter than the left...background that is! I feel if it were lighter & perhaps grainy, that would accentuate the softness of babies skin as the very deep black seems a little harsh! Having said that, I still think its a stunning photo!

          Thanks for all the comments.

          The background was a little difficult Jocelyn, she was actually in her grannies arms at the time, so I had to 'fiddle' a little with the shot.

          The lighting is a little fake, I used my flash with the soft box, and bounced it off the ceiling, but of course because granny (I still cant get used to calling my mum granny *lol) was leaning over her a little, it put that side of her face in shadow, so you certainly have a good eye to have spotted that!

          As for grain, I really didnt want to add any, as I was trying to create an almost porcelane effect to the skin.

            ooo ahh isn't she just so beautiful - I have rarely seen such a contented look on a baby's face - I know I am supposed to critique the photo here but I can't really find anything very profound to say about it except that I like it photographically as well.

                    Awwww it's a very nice shot. Nice one, Daddy. t-up

                    She looks all peaceful and soft with peachy skin.

                    I reckon you could just about get away with cropping just a litle bit off the bottom to remove the part where shoulder is showing ... but it's not really essential.

                      I just think the photo is beautiful.

                      On my own, I couldn't critique it but now I have seen Pol's comment, I tested it and I think losing the hand/shoulder? would not spoil the picture.
