    I happened to catch some nice light this afternoon while we were hanging around watching TV. Our house is pretty dark so it's rare I get any light worth working with. Here are a few shots...would love any comments/suggestion on the lighting as that's what I was working on more than the poses/background here :lol:

    She's beautiful! :D
    #3 is a great portrait :thumbup: - He is a handsome young man.

    I'd kill the highlights.

    What I do is:
    Pull the Shadow slider all the way to the left (0%)
    Move the Highlights to the right, to my desired %.

    Wrap it up with sharpening, for the final pop.

    Thank you! I really didn't like the way it had come out in that area...and my post processing skills aren't very good so I wasn't quite sure how to fix it. Thanks so much for the tip! I'm going to try that tonight and post to see how it looks!

    Cindy - Should be in TX the beginning of October :D

    Whoohooo girlfriend! We are gonna have us some fun! (Don't worry, you will get all this hick Texan lingo down pretty quick)

    Remind me to get you started on some Dallas/Fort Worth marketing soon. We'll get you booked up in no time.

    ohhhhhhh I can't wait to meet one of the people who orginally set me off on my current career path, and taught and inspired me over the years. Leave the kiddos at home because we are going to par-tay!
