Some pictures I took orriginally as part of the front cover for a thank you card to be sent all the people who bought us gifts for our new daughter. I've been rather slack in getting the card finished but here's the front over photos. Comments appreciated.

Some really good head shots. I would clone out the flash in the eyes. I don't know, I just never like that white spot a flash puts in the eyes.

Hey thanks for your comments. I used a soften filter and sharpened it in Neat Image. I now see what you mean about the flash pagefile.

I get that eye flash all the time, I just don't like it. It just bugs me now that I know more what to look for in fixing an image.
I have been looking at allot of the pro shots and very few have that eye flash in them.

When I photoshop the eye flash out, I think the image looks much better.

To me it makes the pictures look lifeless without them. I don't really care for them in the pupil dead center, but in the iris I like.


If God dwells inside us, like some people say, I sure hope he likes enchiladas, because that's what he's getting.

it's called a catchlight

and if you ever open up a magazine you will rarely see a model without catchlights

WOW I did look at a magazine once. LOL

I have looked at lots of portraits and most don't have a blown out spot in there eyes, from an on camera flash. The "catchlight" you see in the magazines (better yet photog books), well they look more natural. Because its not an on camera flash, they have them set up so its not blown out, its not just one big white spot in the eye. You will see the "catchlight" look more natural in the eye because there is more than one light they used. It looks as if the light comes from a window.

The pictures are wonderful. The baby looks so alert and her skin tones are lovely. She is such a cutie-pie!
