My little wanted some tea party pictures so I happily threw this together and shot! I would love any CC on these to improve. I am going to do another session with her cousins included.

I like the set in general with the second image being outstanding!

She has a great outfit and a nice tea set.

I like the white flowers on the bushes, more so in the 3rd and 4th image, but the greenery being so much in focus is not really adding much to the images. Perhaps a shallower DOF would help keep the interest on the little girl? Perhaps you are using a lens that will not allow for that. I think f/4 or even more open would have been ideal.

I would love to hear others input.

I agree this is a nice set. Perhaps some separation light from the background and some more blur on the background would add to the images as it would direct even more attention to the beautiful subject.

What others have said and I would shoot these again at golden hour. The warm golden light will transform these images. Don't be afraid of a bit of flare either. It adds a whimsical feel to these types of images. Shoot slightly lower as well, just at eye level. Good start just a bit of tweaking.

The skin-tone on photos 1 and 2 look very green on my monitor. Perhaps add a bit of magenta tint?


Constructive criticism is always appreciated.

I have the hardest time with skin color, especially with all that green around. Thanks!
