    I have been working really hard on composition, posing, lighting, flash, no flash, shadows, white balance, exposure, egad! It's freaking hard isn't it?

    This my 4th "studio" shoot. I took the pictures last night and fell in love with these little girls. I can't wait to process the rest of them, but I wanted to see if yall thought I am doing better and what else to watch for in the future.

    First shoot:

    (with a TON of post processing)

    I love both shots! Nice lighting, esp the second shot. Those two are gonna break some hearts in 10 years. :)

    Thanks everyone! I'm so happy y'all like them! This was my first time to use my flash off of my camera. Fun stuff!

    I'm getting more comfortable instructing and noticing little things like resting their head too heavy on their hands, blocking eachothers faces, etc.

    These kids are definitely going to be heartbreakers. They are absolutely hilarious, I have a ton of out-takes that I think are going to be just as cute as the "posed" shots.

    I can't wait until their Mom sees them!

    The first one is perfect, just adorable! The second is very nice as well but in my opinion the lighting seems a tad harsh and maybe the WB off a bit. But you're doing excellent!

    Hmm, yea, I think you are right. It looks a little yellowish. I will rework the RAW.

    I showed their Mom the pics last night and she was absolutely thrilled. Here are some more.... (I didn't completely post-process all of them until she makes her pics)...

    7. A bit of a shadow behind Carrie, but beautiful expressions. I will probably finish the postwork on this one to brighten eyes, etc.
