    hi all, today i did my 2nd 'paid job' - portraits of a friend's gorgeous little ones:lovey: ... i am beginning to feel more comfortable with my new 50mm 1.8 lens and learning to stop the aperture down a few stops too!!:lol: Melissa wanted pics with the hat on baby cooper and it was white, just like the backdrop so it probably blends in a bit but was so cute i had to post some. Anyway, burst my bubble if you like :mrgreen: but i think these are my best work yet!!! And i think i am finally happy with my black & whites!! - Yipppeeee xx any feedback is as always greatly appreciated xxx:heart:

    All very nice. 1, 5 and 6 are outstanding.

    You'll get no "bubble bursting" from me. Excellent use of natural light!

    #11 & 4 are my favorites. I love how the eyes are always so crisp and inviting in your work with children. Very nicely done, and I agree that this is your best series so far. It's been a treat to watch your photography evolve!

    Those are absolutely stellar. I've done a LOT of kids portraits, and they're beastly tough at times. These are just great from top to bottom.

    Smashing job!

    The only suggestions I can offer are nit-picks. A slight crop off the left of #8 and a bit off the top of #9. It think these are the weakest two in general, but I love all of the rest.

    I am so impressed by how far you've come! Someone said natural light!? Window or outdoors?

    :) Bethany

    Hooray!! Yippee!!! Thank-you!! I feel i have learnt SOOOOOO much from you amazing guys on this brilliant forum - i have never spent so much time on my computer in my life but i now feel i am getting the results!! It certainly was very rewarding looking at the shots i took and liking - loving about 80%!! Sorry about the babble but i have had the roughest month in my life and this has really given me a boost - and the forum itself has given me something else to think about... Thanks again xxx
    PS..Bethany138 - yes, these were shot outside my house under a large covered entertainment area (pergola)... love the light under here x
