Looking for advice and tips, Critiquing is welcome.
Okay, so my friend had this shoot in mind with her 3 year old daughter. It would be my first time really using my studio and a backdrop, a backdrop she bought online that is kind of small..... especially when you include a child's painting easel which really takes up space.
To be honest, I prefer outdoor shoots to indoor, but my friend has offered herself and her daughter up as guinea pigs in order for me to get out of my comfort zone and work on my skills for indoor studio shoots and learn from my mistakes.
Other than the obvious mistakes - 1: too close to backdrop (really didn't have a choice) and
2: the backdrop was in focus so that you can see the wrinkles
3: the lighting changes

If you see any other mistakes or little things you want to nitpick, please let me know so I can make sure not to make those mistakes again :)

No nitpicking from me. I just wanted to say that I LOVE that she is in all white!

#1 is a bit hot and #2 you missed focus. What modifier are you using?

She is very cute and I think you should do this shoot again.

Modifier? Sorry, my brain has taken off early for the weekend and does not want to even think about working.
I'm at the office (my husband's shop) so I don't have the details to the image right infront of me, I did use my 430EX II flash off camera with a 45" Photoflex umbrella. I believe I also used a warm pink film over the flash.

Lol, and I'm still learning it. To be honest I very much prefer outdoor shoots where I can use sun so learning to use and control the lighting for indoor shoots is definitely new to me.
