    A little to dark for my taste and they are lacking a little in the sharpness category but you captured some great expressions.

    What a beautiful smile... I like the first one a lot...

    I am so new I feel stupid asking this question but how did you get this lighting??? I haven't had any success at this, and would appreciate you're input.

    np, thanks for the critique.

    I had the camera on a tripod, with a hotshoe adapter for both my camera and flash. I had the flash set up about 45 degrees to my daughters right, out about 5ft. I had a big white posterboard about 3 feet in front of the flash, pointing back at my daughter. I had to play around with the distance between the flash and the poster board, so i took a bunch of test pics, until i found a place where the shot was lit up to my liking.

    I dunno. The subject really doesn't match the setting/lighting. Plus the lighting is quite a bit funky, what were you using here?

    Other than that, nice and sharp, and good "model".

    first off, my daughter runs around with no shirt on all the time when shes home..you will find this out when your child gets older..they hate clothes for a period of time in their lives. Its not illegal as its not pornographic or sexual in nature. I cropped to just below her shoulders for a sort of childish innocent look..as any parent would know kids love being not just shirtless, but naked. I'm not taking porn shots.

    for you to imply that there is anything "weird" about this is insulting.

    shes 6 years old..still within the "i dont like clothes when im at home" age. my problem is not that you have your own opinion, but not only did you say it was weird, you pretty much said i was shooting porno with my daughter, by saying its illegal...go ahead and show these to any cop and ask them if they are child pornography. they are tasteful pictures of my beautiful daughter.

    if you read anything else into that, you must be projecting your own pedophilia or something, as you are the only person to have ever mentioned that angle, and dozens of family members have seen them already. one of which being my father in law, a lawyer, and my best friend, a cop.

    I can see where Chris is coming from, many chain photo labs in the US wouldn't print these and quite likely would call the local PD.

    Lets move on people. Jesus. If you have a problem with the post, report it. If not, move on.

    Dont take things to personally here on the forum its not worth it. There will be many people that will agree and disagree with a point of view. If these werent cropped the way they were I probably would see the point of view of the Chris. The shots are nice and you did a great job of catching her expressions. Also your a neighbor of mine almost :thumbup:
