I took these today at two separate times. Did some pp to them to fix the exposure. C&C very welcomed here. I really would like to learn from all of you and would love some advice. Thank you!

I like them. She is a super cute little girl. I would just watch cutting off limbs at certain areas, like wrists or ankles or elbows that sort of thing. some of the pictures look a little soft to me but it could be the compression.
otherwise I think you did great :)

Thanks so much for the comments. I guess I have a tendency to cut off certain parts. But can you clarify...is cutting off at the middle of a forearm ok?  :o I am having probs with getting pictures looking really sharp. What can I do to improve this? Is it that I'm just not steady when shooting or that my daughter is moving so fast or both?

My favorites are the 3rd and 4th. She looks so grown up in #3! If you're having focus issues, it might be the shutter speed you're using. It's still kind of pushing the low side, especially for 100mm. In one, you're all the way up at f9, but you're at 1/125th. You could open up your aperture a lot more and then you could push up your shutter speed -- it'll really help you get moving kids in focus a lot better. :)

Editing to add.. better to crop at the middle of the forearm than the joints! Since you're probably not going to print 20x30s (:lol:), you can get away with cropping in pretty close if that helps eliminate the limb chopping better than staying wide. :)

Andrea thanks for your insight. I was having all kinds of issues with shutter speed yesterday. Your suggestion makes sense, I will have to remember that.

Thanks for the tip on the joints! LOL!

Thank you. I know, tell me about it! Last year older boys (2-3 yo) were already checking her out saying how cute she is! :shock:
