    See now why I said stop down for DOF, and use duct tape :biggrin-93:

    She is a sweetheart!! Even though they don't follow instructions and have a mind of their own, I love shooting little ones.

    Forgot the duct tape! A slow shutter speed would not have worked. The pups were much easier. The other 2 are older so hopefully they will co-operate.

    I like the third one of her turning and looking at you/the camera. That's a sweet one. Looks like the penguin got wiped out in the process! lol That just made me laugh.

    It probably would just help to have someone helping you, but that isn't always practical. In the end you got some nice photos. When she's a little older you'll probably be able to do more; you're right with younger ones we're on their schedule, they're not on ours.

    Well she's wonderful, and you've at least got some good years between 15 months and 15 years to take lots of pictures!

    Cute child, wonderful holiday clothing outfit. Pretty sure some of these pics will become treasured childhood memories! I LIKE the set you built and lit!

    Thanks. My daughter was helping and the little one did not want to co-operate. We had toys, a rocking horse which she likes and a rocking chair. She was throwing the toys at me and laughing. It was all a big game to her, but at 15 months what else is there.

    Thanks Derrel, I took the advice about the background should be wider and I added another blanket to the floor to get the subject further away from the BG. I am taking family member photos on Christmas Day so the set will at least get some use.
