    Ok! Here's my 1st Thread on TPF.

    I am a new photographer, with absolutely no supplies to work with!

    Here is how I managed to do this picture:

    1. I sat my daughter on my couch (creating the black backdrop);
    2. I sat a junky, old table lamp beside her (creating the lighting effect);
    3. I threw some old Christmas deco infront of her (creating the props);
    4. I took the picture. No clue about ISO, nothing!

    Please, Be Nice! I'm Here To Learn.

    not bad at all, I actually like, it's a little plain but given the equipment, it's pretty good. I think the lighting fit the dress well and have a Christmast feeling to it.

    Pretty good job of McGuyvering the entire portrait! Her dress's waist band is a bit overexposed, but the overall rich, warm,moody lighting is nice.

    I see you are from NB, and am not sure if others know McGuyver, but you did an excellent McGuyver job!

    Urban Dictionary: McGuyver

    Not BAD at all. The only thing I'd recommend is change the white balance, the extra warmth really bothers me personally.

    Thanks so much! The comments & suggestions really help. It's definitely a struggle taking a portrait of a 4 month old, by yourself.. ha! I'll see what else I can do in PS (I'm still trying to work some of the tools out).
