    I have gone through most of the shots from today. The shoot was done in exchange for a day of babysitting! :thumbup: So I tryed my best, but I really struggled w/exposure due to the nature of this babys bright white hair and the fact that he *would not* stay still for anything. And would not look at the camera at all.. when he walked, eh looked straight down at his feet. And he was just off and running constantly, so I only got about 100 shots. Narrowed down to these 8 but know that even these 8 aren't what I want them to be. Please help with some CC. I don't know if I can do something, anything, different to make them their best. Thank you in advacne

    no you didn't do a bad job at all. i didn't mean that at all. i made the Norway reference because he has white hair and blue eyes.......almost looks like a little viking.

    he would be very difficult to photo and to PP.
    do you have any studio lights?
    when you photograph him, where are you metering?

    Ah, thanks. No, no studio lights. I tryed to stay in the shade and do an all around meter. Thats what was suggested overall when I asked for advice the other day. When I metered his hair, it came out way way underexposed overall.

    I would like to show his mom some... which ones do you all suggest?

    4 and 5 are my favorites

    I have to say that the vignette works quite well as it draws more attention to your subject...its easy to over do it though

    The fence pic had great potential

    Overall pretty good :p
