It's been a LONG time since I've posted pictures here and actually a long time since I've even taken any pictures, but I wanted to share my most recent shoot with a friend's 2 year old daughter! Some of you that have been here awhile might remember my past shoots with this same beautiful baby girl! Here at 10 months old:
https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1072852
And here as a newborn:
https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=950052
It was neat to see how much she has grown now that she is 2! She definitely made me work for any poses or smiling but in the end I still got some cute shots of her! I just started editing all of the photos so here are the ones I've finished so far! I realize they look a little sharp for some people's taste but it's only because I use a sharpening for web action which sharpens and lowers the resolution.
I was relieved that I got any keepers at all because I have been having a LOT of focus trouble with my camera and I think it needs a good cleaning and a new sensor! :/

Very nice composition and focus is sharp. I would use less saturation on 2 and 4.

All of these are very well done! Processing works well for a young lady.

Can I ask what your set up was like there? The lighting on her face and the background is fabulous. I love the crispness and pop of the subject.

Thank you very much! No set up really, just natural light and my camera. I used my 50mm for the whole shoot. I just tried to position her towards the best light which didn't always work out because she was always on the go lol!

I thought you used flashes. Wow, very good use of natural light

Thank you! I wish they looked that light and bright SOOC but a lot of it is done in editing! :)

These are great photos. I wish I knew how you achieve this kind of high key type look with bright contrasty and vibrant colours. I saw your other posts and you seem to use this style quite a lot. I take plenty of photos of my kids and would like to try this type of processing but don't know where to start.

By the way, the chances are you you don't need a new sensor. I had a focusing problem with my 40D (which I sold later) where it seemed to hunt sometimes and sometimes not. It would hunt likely if the subject was off center and all focusing elements were enabled. However, it was Ok with each individual focusing element.
I blew a lot of air on the focusing elements (which are not in the pentaprism above the main mirror but at the bottom of the body inside something that looks like a series of black ridges). There are 9 small holes there. You can see them if you lift the mirror up. I blew a lot of air in there which must have removed a speck of dust obstructing one of the focusing sensor... and camera started focusing as new. It took a while though and maybe if the dust is stuck you need to take it to the shop to clean it but if you have a blower you may give it a go.
