This is a portrait of Dallas...




1. How is the lighting? Is it too dark? I think it is not sharp....

2. I was hoping to capture the cute, funny moment.

3. I was trying to capture the playful nature of Dallas.

4. I feel lighting is not that good, and focus like not sharp...

I think posture is ok... catch light is there....

Please advice, and how to better handle babies... have a hard time with Dallas who is a year old...

Thanks...

That orange is "strategically" placed, lol.....
Why choose orange? Why not apple, durian or banana?

Cute, cute

I find the picture is nice and agree his belly is cute too!

If the right bottom orange can be removed, it will look much nicer! :)

I was lookin at the picture again... I think if the curtain is touching the white towel, it would have looked better....

What do you think???

I like this pic generally. However i find the lighting pretty flat. I know its not really worth the effort to setup lights. Maybe window and diffused light can help in this case.

I am thinking....

1. If I crop away the top of the curtain, where the lights come in, will it be better??? It will be more even...

2. I do not have a EX580 MKII and so, I cannot use a slave set up... sigh... I was using single flash only.... If I shoot with a second flash shooting upwards, will it be better???? :think:

For baby photography...most photo books would recommend using natural light, or soft bounce flash from ceilng.

I only have a single flash... if use the soft bounce from ceiling... no catch light..... :think:

I think catch light is still important... so might gotta get a EX580 to pair with EX 430...

I guess its the exposed wall and the window lights behind making it weird...
my 2 cents...

I'm not a pro either hahaha
