    The parents were awesome, the baby hated the whole situation. They did everything to make him smile and so did I. We made him cry a few times but no smiles ;)
    I have never worked in such a dark/small house before and I had to use my kit lens :confused: I was using one flash threw a white umbrella to the left and another bouncing off ceiling/wall to the right.
    Let me know what I can improve on cuz I have more practice sessions coming up.
    Thank you for looking.

    Smiles dont always make good photos so dont worry. These look really good! I love how sharp and saturated the colors are! Nice work!

    Love, love, love #3!!! The child's gaze is so engaging, I can't look away. :)

    When shooting older adults, try to get them to extend their chins out, to avoid that extra chin effect you see in 4 and 5.

    This was done in a house? Were the walls painted black, or did you bring a background?

    Ooh! Thats a great piece of advice Wildmaven, thanks.

    I just used a black sheet thrown over some chairs. The walls were like an orange tan color.

    Billy - Ok, so I am not crazy lol I thought that to! No that was not my intention, thats just how he looked.

    Maybe I shoulda yelled out from behind the camera - "Stop givin me sexy looks" ;)

    Thanks for looking JimmyJaceyMom!
