I am new to posting images on PTN, but I have been a long time lurker around the forums. I must say I am very impressed with the pictures of peoples children and family. I usually stick to Landscape photography, not that I am any good at that.
Recently I upgraded to a 7D with kit lens. I added a 430EXII. I am reading up on its operations on Canon's Digital Learning website. My son was laying down and I plugged in the different settings from an article I had read and snapped a shot of him. I pulled it up in PSto try and edit it, but first I want absolute opinions and improvements needed on an unedited photo.
This photo is straight out of the camera, other than resizing for rules here. With the flash bounced from the left. What am I doing right (if anything) and wrong (I am sure a lot)? I am not looking to become a pro or ever shoot portraits, I just want to make the most of the pictures of my children. Thank you in advance, and sorry for being longwinded.
