Ok guys.. I'm quite frustrated. This weekend I'm doing a 4th of July shoot of my children. I'm going to try and get some nice out door shots. As some of you know from a previous post; one of my firsts concerns was lighting. I made me a reflector from a white foam board and aluminum foil. It works great! I went out this morning to take a couple practice shots. With my camera on a tripod and an assistant holding my reflector, I took a few of my 11 month old. I couldn't for the life of me get her eyes in focus! I took some appealing shots but her eyes are so out of focus! Should I continue to use the tripod to keep from camera shake or take if off the tripod to try and get their eyes in focus? What is the best way to photograph children? I've taken plenty of nice shots of my children, but I'm taking this shoot much more seriously and want them to come out the best they can. If you guys have any advice I'd love to hear it or some examples you can show me? Thanks!
