    Were these supposed to be "Christmas photos", or they were just taken at Christmas?

    1: pulled this one off! Might have been better with a darker background. The shallow DOF makes this one.
    2 and 3 are the best of the bunch. They look like candids, light is good, background on two is great.
    4 just another cute baby shot, nothing wrong with it but nothing special either.
    5. does mom like the editing or the expression? There are several spots that are blown completely out. The hot spots need to be bigger or smaller depending on your intention. Mom might love you forever if you put the color back into just the eyes. (yes its old but people still like it)
    6. I don't like anything about this except your concept. High key idea is good. Don't like the expression, his eye's look "funny" highlights are blown out in several places and the big aperture works against you here because his ear is out of focus and in a prominant place in the frame.

    as far as shooting inside, if you hadn't shown that last shot I would say you "got it" !

    as always, just what spews out of my little mind.

    LOL just photos taken for the use of Christmas cards and to give to family at holiday time. I didn't even think of how you might have thought they had a Christmas theme - my brain is tired. ;)

    Hi Kathi,
    #6 is actually my favorite from this set!
    I'm not digging #2 or 3 so much because the kids look kind of akward in both. I like #4 because his eyes are so sharp, but I think I'd like it more in B&W because baby skin is too pink in photos for my taste;) I just mean the skin color makes him look a bit cold. In #5, I like the eyes, but I agree that the blown out highlights are just a bit too over the edge for my liking. But, yeah, I really like that last one:)

    thanks April - I'll take these comments into consiredation for sure. I'lltry warming up the skin a bit in 4 maybe? I hate those frilly clothes on kids and my suggestion was to have them in much less, simpler, or the baby even only in a diaper or better yet nothing but she wanted those big uncomfortable christmas dresses (they match and mom liked that, oh boy) I'm dying to try some more and I'm glad you like number 6 because its one of my favorite pics out of all of mine yet altogether, :)

    Number 5 is my favorite. Gotta say, though, it must be easy to get good results when you've got such an adorable little model! She is such a doll.
