Were you shooting with the 50? What did you stop down to?

Yes, they were all with the 50, stopped down to f/2 and shutter was 1/200.

Her hair is GORGEOUS!! She's gotten sooooo big!!!

Beautiful shots, and I LOVE that they were done so "simplely" :)

Thank you!! She has gotten so big it is crazy to me! Being my first and only, I am in awe all the time of her and how much she has grown :)

Dynamite, as always! Those eyelashes of hers are amazing, what a little doll you have there. Great job with these. It goes to show that you don't need a ton of gear, you just need to know what to do with the gear you have!

Sue, I always appreciate your comments! Thank you so much. I am really trying to make things work with what I have and, so far, I am having a great time figuring it all out! Of course, she makes it easy on me when she cooperates ;)

Thank you so much Stacey!! I have been practicing a lot...mostly with other people's families :) I get nervous posting pictures because there are some great people on here that I know I don't get things as perfect as they do, so it is so awesome to hear such nice comments. Thanks for the FB comments too!! So nice to see you there! I can't wait to see what you do with your beautiful daughter and her Christmas pics!

Great shots.

Now did you "see the light", or did you "get lucky" with the light?

Thank you guys! All your comments are very appreciated.

AWESOME! How did you setup the Christmas lights?

Thanks! For the xmas lights, I put some white seamless paper over my headboard up the wall (since my headboard is a dark wood). Then I just taped the lights back and forth across it...I actually only had painters tape which is bright blue so I had a little photoshopping to do to get the bright blue out :) But, the lights were white on a white cord so they blended in great on the white paper.

Thank you :) Haha...well, most of the time I think I still just 'get lucky'! I'm getting closer to feeling like I know what I am doing, but don't quite have that confidence yet! I'm not sure I see it yet or not. I do a lot of test shots and think if the window is to my right, then I'll want to bounce that flash up and back to my left. It helps that the walls in my room are still all white so it is like one giant reflector :) Plus, the white blankets laid on the bed helped as well. I look forward to one day saying that I 100% just saw the light and save myself the trouble of so many shots :)

There are some great threads on here, buried away, on the topic "seeing the light".

Playing with studio strobes and modelling lights is wonderful training to pick this up...

Thank you!! :)

I don't have any fancy lighting just my external flash. I set everything up on my bed in my room and there is a big window to the right. Then I just bounced my speedlite up and behind me...that was it!

That's even more awesome!!! It really shows that it's not the equipment, but the photographer that makes the shot.
