    My Pregnant Wife

    I took these pictures in our sunroom two weekends ago. I used my Sony A700 and my Tamron 17-50/2.8 lens. All lighting was controlled through opening and closing the blinds in the 9 windows in the room - though I believe I left them all wide open for the vast majority of the shots. The backdrop is a king-sized flat sheet and I cut the elastic from the fitted sheet and spread it on the ground.

    Any C&C is appreciated! If you want to see the rest of the shots in the set visit my flicker page (linked in my signature). TIA!

    8. Obviously not taken in our sunroom, but I thought it was a fun picture.

    8 is actually my favourite

    I would reccomend getting a clean background, one without all the lines and wrinkles. Either throw it in the wash/dryer, depending on the material - or you can dryclean it, or even if it's just to get the wrinkles out - steam clean it (or iron if you don't have a steam cleaner)

    Also, at my job we hang sheer across the backdrop, it gives it a nice softening effect and if their are any little wrinkles it will cover them.

    I like all the poses you use, and great incorporation of props!

    I NEVER like maternity pictures, but I have to say the idea of putting the kids name in there is a pretty clever and unique approach. Particularly like the selective color one and the sand one is just VERY cool.

    Nice ideas!

    Yeah...I knew the backdrop would be a little rough looking. I don't have a place to keep it hung up all the time, so when it's not in use I fold it up and stick it in a bag. I was in the process of ironing it when my wife came out and was ready to go. She didn't feel like waiting so I threw it in the dryer for about 3 or 4 minutes and went with that.

    I'll plan in advanced a little better next time!
