we all have to start somewhere...
Very true.... obviously LOL!
(Not sure what software you've got but the trial of Lightroom Beta 3 is free to download and use until they release it officially, at the end of April.) On these photos it looks like the light was behind baby and you were facing the light with your camera. Hope you don't mind, I had a quick play with the top one -
I have Photoshop 7, but very little know-how with using it really.
Yup you're right- light source (the window) was behind baby
Thanks for playing with the photo- I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way it turned out!
I'm assuming those were with your 50 1.8. Did you shoot these in Raw? It looks like your white balance is off which is an easy fix if you have photoshop or lightroom...
Yes, 50mm 1.8 Lens
No, I shot them in jpeg <blushing>
I actually have no idea about lighting (obviously) and only have the flash the camera came with- no fancy extras. When I had the flash on it was WAYYYY overexposed, but I don't know enough to shoot out of "Automatic Settings" mode so I just set up my own "lighting" and turned the flash off Horrible, I know LOL
Put your baby in front of a big window (when they are sleeping so you have time to shoot a lot) and practice taking photos with different settings.
I goofed around with a couple of the shots....
Thanks so much! The ones you goofed around with look much better than my originals! And thanks for the tip with the lighting/window!
Very awesome! Thankyou so much!
That last one was classic!
Congratulations, my wife and I just had a baby girl just over a week ago and it has been an amazing experience...
Thanks! I'm sure it's a pose that's been done 1000s of times before, but I hadn't personally seen it before, so unlike all the other shots, it was one I tried to be a little more "creative" with in my own way.
CONGRATULATIONS to you on your new baby girl! (I think I just saw her pictures posted by you, yes?) Is this your first? They honestly grow so fast... I know it's over said and sounds cliche' but it's true- enjoy every moment! And of course, you can never take too many pictures!
