    Kids can be tough to shoot, from my experiance with seven, eight and nine year olds they tend to be hams at times resulting in some very weird stuff (with some odd props if you are not paying attention :lmao:) once the camera comes out.

    9 and 4 are the ones I like the most, they look almost calm :lmao:

    Ha ha ha...yeah. It was a wild shoot. That's why I took them outside first and let them kick the leaves. The calmer photos came later in the shoot. :mrgreen:

    For some reason, the boys love my flowers. The boy today even picked one up and started playing with it, LOL. I'm surprised he didn't use it as a bat for picture #1.

    Tomorrow, I have 3 more sessions, and I think they're all boys! :confused:

    I ask every parent to sign a consent form. I've worded it so that they know I'm not going to use the photos for anything bad and it's not a scary form for them to sign. :) So far, everyone has signed it.

    Thanks, that was my favorite out of the leaf fight series. Even though you can't see their faces, the actions are pure kid energy. :)

    I like them all. They look like they are having so much fun. Just a thought to throw your way: the lettering/name in the photo is distracting to me. What I do is use a border then put a caption (if used) and my name on it to protect ownership of the photo. Nice job and thanks for sharing!

    If you do it that way, then someone could just crop that out and still have the original picture. ;)

    If someone really wants to steal your web images, even putting your name/logo is not going to stop them. They can either crop it out or clone it out. The ones where the logo is watermarked in the middle makes it a little more difficult, but not by much.

    Small web size images are often not what thieves look for anyway, since they are not able to print them larger than the size of a thumbnail or mini wallet size with any quality.

    The copyright info is more for just sending out a general message to everyone saying "this is my property, and you are not allowed to violate my ownership rights." So, as far as Im concerned, whether you put your name in a frame or not, it doesnt really matter.

    Also, when saving web images (in PS for example), you can embed ownership info in the image file itself, which leaves nothing to ambiguity.
