Making birthday invitations for our babies 1st birthday. We got a cake a let him go at it.

C & C welcome.


This first one I thought was ideal since he will be turning 1 and was holding up his finger. I'm not real fond of the shadow cast on his face though. Any suggestions on how to remove the shadow are appreciated. My cloning skills aren't up to snuff.

Very cute series, it gave me a good laugh and a big smile. I did not think the shadow was a issue, the eye is still clear. A nice series and a very cute boy.

A bunch of equipment with Canon on it and some stuff with Sigma on it. The desire to capture a moment in time and share it with you! :)

I like the first one but the shadow going straight into his eye bothers me.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE that last one though. I like the others - but since you can't see the cake one may wonder why the mess. The last is priceless :)

Oh my...I didn't know the Michelin Man had a baby! :eek::p;)

Very cute. You're right about the shadow on pic#1. That would have been my fav if it wasn't for the shadow. I'm not that good with cloning either. How far was your lighting? Your lighting looks very close to your subject. Maybe back up your light source a tad. I notice very hard shadows on the other shots as well. Another option is to diffuse your light source.

My next fav is the last one.

Peace,
Yanis :D

i might be offended had I not said that myself to my wife on several occasions. Actually, he looks less michelinish in these.

any comments on the lighting. This was my first time using an all white background and using plexi. originally i was trying to get a reflection on the plexi but that went out the window when he started messing the cake up.

I guess it might be salvageable. This was about 15 minutes work. A little more attention to detail and it might just work.

I've been experimenting with using a paint brush to reduce shadows. I select color from an area of about the tonal range I want, reduce the opacity to 10-20% and slowly paint the shadow out with a very soft brush.

It's not perfect by any means but I find it easier than trying to use the clone tool.
