Lovely shot, full of character. Mind you, a better quote would be "Go on, I'm all ears" :D

Just one niggle. The feather (??) part of your logo in this shot looks like a smudge on my screen. Maybe increase the opacity a bit.

Lee was right, patience, I have shed loads of props, check my maternity site the gallery on there should give you some ideas.
Oh did I mention patience...
For me it's about trying to show off the size of the newborn, ask the parents to send you shots they like then at least you know what they want, shoot nice and wide open too.

Weekend off for me in Manchester, back to bumps next weekend though.

Enjoy Mike ;-)a

Evening all, the weather here is ridiculous. i havent seen so much water in months.

Were off to the smoke for a few days this week, and i was wondering if anyone can think of any apps etc that will come in handy? Were mainly sightseeing so travel and offers ones would be great. Were staying just off Tower bridge, so anywhere i have to go at night would be cool. Im taking my tripod, although i wish i had bought a small one now too.

Cheers.

Wayne trip advisor is good, have used the city app abroad and tells what there is to do around you, hotels restaurants etc....

Citymapper is good for the transport network and tubemap which is just a map of the tube is handy to have.

@Mike re babies creativelive is doing a three day session on babies and day two has not long started. It is free if you watch it live http://www.creativeliv​e.com/live3 (external link)

Evening all. Does anyone have an recommendations with regards to online printing? I'm hoping to get a couple of prints A5-A4 size, I've used Snapfish & Photobox before for odds and ends. I didn't know if anyone could recommend anywhere else, or are they all a much of a muchness?

Edit; Love the Squirrel shot Spuddy!

thanks JD. Yes I picked the wrong one - I should've chosen a darker grey for that image.

here's another

Hi chums, I've been asked to do some baby photos for some friends and their newborn...having never shot a newborn before or indeed any babies, should I do it and what do I need?? Any advice very appreciated!

Nothing like Ian's league but I've done a few. Warmth is very important cos if they're cold they scream. and if they're hungry / tired / bored / a bit fed up, they scream too :lol: I have a beanbag thing that I cover with a soft snuggly throw so they're really comfy. The clever arranging of arms and head etc is only really possible before they're about 2 weeks old - is that about right Ian? after that they aren't so co-operative... good luck Mike!

This one I've done a bit of a cross processing effect.
