Hi guys, A tad excited after my 1st 'paid' portrait session :lmao: - , it was for a friend of a friend who saw some photos i'd taken and wanted some of her kiddies. Set up a little 'studio' area and took some outside too. I Was pretty happy with the results and they are coming to view them tomorrow (fingers crossed they're happy too!) Have officially decided i prefer to photograph 'big kids' over bubs and 'one kid' over two!!! God help me when someone wants pics of their five children!!!!!!!! Here are a few of my faves (there are plenty more!)Any feedback is appreciated greatly! Thanks for looking xxx #1..hating the wrinkles in the backdrop - added a gaussian blur - does it help at all?? #2 #3 #4... this is my favourite:heart: #5 #6 #7 #8 I'm still 'playing' with my b&w techniques and not sure that they are that good - shooting in RAW, then converting in Photoshop7 using channel mixer (50,30,20).... any advice on 'hotting' them up??? xxx I swapped a bit with the shooting modes using Program, and Aperture Priority... Canon 350D with the kit 18-55mm lens - STILL hoping to buy a 50mm 1.8 lens SOON!!!! All indoor 'studio' shots were taken with natural window light only and outside i used fill flash on a couple xx Looking forward to your feedback!
