Angela,

If this were my baby, you'd be making lots of money from me! She's beautiful, and you made a gorgeous photo.

Critical feedback? I love you focussed on her eyes. The shallow DoF is fine with me. You also connected with her, and that matters. Bravo!

Would not be a lead in shot for the catalog. When we shoot kids, we always try to suggest doing everything possible to make the photo stand out. I went right to her hair which is an amazing color and looks very full, at least on the sides. Right now the top looks a little like a hot steamy day where it kind of went flat.

DOF, with the sweater.

curious why you would post requests for comments on the editing of the photo when trying something new, and you ordered three canvas of that shot. Why not wait to hear some suggestions and trying them out to see the results before ordering?

2 reasons: because the things I was most concerned about I can't change with editing - the lighting and dof. Also because I am due to submit family session photos to a client in a few days and I need to have canvas samples to show her. She told me she'd like to order several so I'd like to increase my chances of that. I'm switching business models from only digitals to focusing on physical pieces and this would be my first opportunity for that.

Thanks for the feedback, I'll keep that in mind.

If this prints well, then pp is fine, dof is fine (taste thing as stated)

My nit... light source needs to be a smige higher, to place catch light in the 10:00 position, if you can adjust it. A reflector to bounce into the shadows camera right wouldn't hurt.

Beautifully captured expression, I'd have canvas examples as well if it was my kid, nits and all. :)

Thanks. I just got 2 of the canvases today and they are beautiful!!

I got them from Tribeca Printworks, but now that I looked at the back it seems like it could've been put together better.

I like the image. I like the DOF, that being said the focus point appears to be the tip of her nose. When shooting with that DOF i always want to try to nail the eyes as opposed to anywhere else on her face. all in all i like the image

Is there a reason you shot with f/2.2?

I mean, a very nice subject, but to me that aperture would be asking for trouble with this type of shot. I'd probably tend toward something like f/5.6, that way everything should fall nicely in the DOf!

So, maybe do some exercises, similar shots and lighting but mess with that aperture! Give it a try!

I know what it's like to shoot with a "fast" lens...I had a beloved 85mm f/1.2, and yeah, I messed around a bit with some close portraits, but I didn't want to come up with disappointing results!
