    I am a newbie myself so I can't offer much in the way of advice. But 1, 7, and 9 are my favorites!

    Setup? like background? If so, I was actually at her own home and I used a black sheet draped over a laundry rack haha Im very new, no special professional photography stuff, although I actually dont believe you need all that stuff to make a great photo! =D

    No not the backdrop, but equipment wise. I agree that there is a bare minimum in regards to what you can achieve with a camera. Reason I ask though, is that quite a few of those shots look a bit TOO soft. What equipment were you actually shooting with?

    Those baby pics are so cute.:D I really do want to have a baby brother. Hope, my mother will grant it soon. If I already have one, I'll also take different shots of him.

    I use PaintShop Pro... I just use the lasso selection tool. Select what you want to be in color, then go to selections on the top tool bar and click invert and it will automatially select the big picture and also what you want to be in color will be selected. Then when you hit invert go and change the photo to black and white! =D I hope this helps even though its diff. programs. :D

    Most of them look a bit underexposed and soft. You can also see wrinkles in he black material.

    Well, how can I fix that? I just used the auto setting. Im trying to learn more about the camera thats why im asking for advice. I cant see the wrinkles, maybe im blind lol Maybe the one your talking about is #3 where she is kind of grasping the material. Thats the only one i can see. Thanks!
