Well, I survived my first "shoot". My friend generously gave me her baby belly to take pictures of! We had a lot of fun, and I think the pictures turned out decent... soft in some, some whites are a little blown in others, but I am posting the three best here for your kind C&C. We set up in her kitchen next to a window on a very cloudy and rainy day. I hung a white sheet across from the window from the ceiling and used a black sheet as a backdrop, which surprisingly worked out great. No other additional light was used except the overhead kitchen light. I put a diffuser on my pop up flash and used it at times when needed. I copied poses I had seen online and elsewhere... a bit cliche, but I wanted to focus on what I was doing... The mom loved the pictures, so I am happy with that. However, I always would like to learn more...so give it to me guys Thanks!
