What do you guys think? Good? Bad? What would make those a 10/10?

Looks pretty good to me. A bit overexposed on my uncalibrated work monitor.

My only suggestion is to cover the rest of the room in white paper when you're working with reflective surfaces.

I agree with both comments above (and I have a fully calibrated monitor system).

Nicely set up. Something in the pose bothers me, though, especially in #2: the boy looks guilty, as if he'd been caught doing something forbidden.

I need to work a bit more on high-key photography. Would a second flash behind the subject pointed at the background help?

Yes, I realized that after the fact. Lesson learned.

Thanks for the feedback.

I think it's more important and useful to you if you look at the histogram when you shoot and make sure you don't blow out the highlights. Adjust shutter speed and ISO accordingly. Also watch the histogram in post.

I wasn't looking at the histogram, but when I exposed it just a little less the background looked yellowish and I wanted to make it pure white.

Now that I think about it, maybe I should've exposed properly and adjusted it after the fact. Another lesson.

looks good and I think over expose in baby photos are good as long as it's not too much :)

To me the biggest thing is the reflections in the eggs. here is a quick edit showing those reduced as well as his face evened out a bit as well (brought up the shadow side of his face and lowered the bright side a touch)

Hope you don't mind.

Thanks. I don't know how to edit images, so I don't mind :-) I think I need to slowly start looking into editing.

I need to invest in better viewing equipment because I can't see any of that :-( Thank you.
