    Here are a few of the pictures from the baby shoot that I did yesterday. I am not at all happy with the way they came out. The lighting was really rough and there wasnt any really bright room in the house. I positioned him in front of the brightest window that they had, but the colors are all off and Im not sure what I could have done to fix these up. All suggestions are welcome. Thanks!!

    I tried this same thing with my friends boy. I dont really know anything about portrait photos but some people on here will give you good pointers. Did you use a tripod? They all look a little blurry but #2 i like. better then anything i got lol.

    What was your ISO set at???

    It looks like you used a flash and some areas of the photos are blown out.

    You should have boosted your ISO! It is easier to fix noise then an it is to fix camera movement!

    I have a few I didnt post here but the ISO was at 800 and they were so grainy that the were un-usable. So I didnt want to boost it anymore.

    What a bumout! Thanks for the help

    Manual exposure, 1/750 sec, f/1.8, ISO 1250, Compensation: -5/2

    High shutter speed, wide aperture, high ISO? Try turning your shutter speed down to 1/200 or so, and lowering your ISO significantly.

    Confused as to why you would say boost iso when she was shooting so high already. I mean the baby isnt going to move that much so shouldnt she lower it?

    Im assuming she said that because I thought my ISO was set at like 600. I must have screwed my settings up and not realized.

    #2 is okay, the rest look really horrible (sorry). You need to take better control over the lighting if you want something that looks halfway decent. Even just a couple of desk lamps pointed in the right place would help a lot.

    No, I know they are horrible. Its ok. Im clueless with lighting stuff I guess. Things I read said just use natural light and not overhead lights.
