    Recently picked up a Quantaray MS-1. Very simple, very cheap, but it's still very fun to play with. My 7 month old son proved to be a very nice subject.

    If you're just curious about lighting comments, then I'd say the lighting in the second one is pretty neat. Somehow the first one came off really harsh and didn't do good things for his skin and such. (though airbrushing could help that if you loved the shot for whatever reason)

    As a non-lighting comment, I really dislike 2 things with kid pictures...

    1. Characters on anything... it just takes away from the shot IMO.
    2. Diapers. Diapers are gross, esp. when they are bulging from being ready to be changed. I think us parents just kinda get used to them and don't even think about it, but when you stop and think for a sec... it's like... ew?

    BTW... cute boy you have there. (and no, I don't say that about all babies... I think most babies are kind ugly.) :^)

    Haha, both very good points. Especially the diaper thing. You are dead on the money with the fact that parents don't even think about it.

    Thanks, I think he's pretty cute too :p
