    This is my sister's nephew. His mom brought him for a visit, I had my DSLR with me so I decided to take some shots. These were shot around 5 pm in a living room with one wall being a big sliding door, so basically a big sorta diffused light source which made for some decent light. Had to shoot at ISO 400 for some of these to maintain a shutter speed of around 1/100-1/125th if I remember correctly.

    C&C is welcome:

    These shots are really cute... I'm surprised no one has commented! Unfortunately some of them don't have a sharp focus and #6 is a little underexposed. I looove #2, too bad his eyes aren't in focus, but it still makes a wonderful photo and I'm sure a keeper for the parents! Great job! And CUTE baby!

    i think your shutter speed is too slow. The first one has a lot of noise, too high of ISO?

    Thanks, yeah that second one is their favorite. Getting focus right was really hard shooting at 1.8.
    There was very little light. Had to use a slower shutter speed and high ISO.

    It was at 3 pm. There wasn't a light above where he was, only a couple og lights in adjoining rooms.

    Actually I believe I didn't shoot slower than 1/80th.

    Oh, because of the bad lighting? Try using some reflectors the next time around. It frustrates me, too, because window lighting is usually such nice light, but it never seems to be bright enough.

    That and the nifty fifty sucks at AF in low light, and the Rebel XS's limited AF doesn't help. I still have not purchased any lighting stuff, still starting out in photography.

    Oh I see. Well you can make reflectors just out of white poster board. I'm sure you could get some for like 3 bucks at the store.
