Thread: First feed

  1. #1

    Default First feed

    Yesterday was my son's first time trying solid foods.

    Photo was taken on a D90, 35mm F2
    iso : 200
    f2.5
    1/25
    spot metering

    Crop and Whitebalance processed with Capture NX



    Need some critique.
    Is the framing and white balance ok?
    Exposure? Extremely hard to get correct light as full length windows are on the right.
    Doesnt look sharp too right?

    friend, you should use tripod at low light condition, I do not think this is the sharp picture.
    the back ground is so irritating the draw quite some attentions.

    keep working.

    Cute little baby!

    1 - Tad too bluish, dont you think so?
    2 - Could have used faster shutter speed, since its @ f2. Tha baby was not still, thats why it looks blurry.
    3- Could have a hand holding a spoon, feeding him into the frame.
    4- the table top could have been included a bit more, horizontal, or none at all, if you had just wnted to capture his facial expressions.

    Thats all from me, based on 1st impression. I hope this was not the ONLY picture you took. I would have taken in burst mode and picked out the sharpest / more interesting pose. Keep shooting!

    A tripod won't help when comes to photographing kids. Either pump up the ISO or shoot near a window (of course if it's daytime). Photos like these, don't have to worry too much about the background, as it's the moment that matters more. White balance seems a bit off ... too blue. Why not try adding the hand & spoon in the frame, as it will say more about first time he's having solid food?

    higher ISO will be better, you will be able to prevent out of focus or movement, noisy pictures are not really that terrible.

    for such situation is do custom WB, you will get closer to original skin tone.

    since the baby is stay still in one place only, just use manual exposure is far better auto exposure.

    1. Where's the food.
    2. The picture isn't tack sharp.
    3. The white balance seems off. Try Photoshop/Adobe Bridge. Capture NX ain't so great.
