    This group wanted some matching pictures of all the grandkids to go on grandma and grandpa's wall. That was quite the morning for me, lots of kids means lots of humor trying to get them to all look at the camera!!!

    Beautiful! Man, that group shot looks like it was quite the challenge. You have a difficult age group there :) I'm sure Grandma will be beside herself with joy!

    I don't know if it's just my screen but all of them except the first look over exposed. And also in the 2nd picture all of the faces look soft and a little out of focus maybe?

    The last shot though looks really good, i like the expression on the baby's face and the scene just is perfect. Good job!!

    Keep up the good work.

    They all seem to have a bit of a green huw to them as well.

    Their skin tones should be spot on. I use a "formula" I learned from this great book called "skin". It's a book specifically for processing skin types.

    I'll double check though. We were in the trees up on the mountain.

    I agree that they may be slightly overexposed, but I think it is done well and adds a certain style to the photos.

    I'd be interested in taking a look at this "Skin" book. Do you mind if I ask who the author is? Thanks!

    Highly recommend that Lee Varis book. It's called "Skin The Complete Guide to Digitally Lighting, Photographing, and Retouching Faces and Bodies." It's great!

    I love extreme bright photos. They are processed bright like this. BUT, the faces are NEVER over exposed. Bright-yes, but no highlight detail is lost in their faces.

    Yes, that group one is a bit soft. I'll see if I can't fix to a point of being "okay". I had it on manual focus on a tripod so I could hammer out 10 or so shots in quick succession (higher chance of getting at least one shot where they are all looking in my general direction), I obviously didn't nail my focus, and it's hard to tell that on the LCD. grrrrr!
