I had a family photo session today, and it was definitely the most challenging shoot I've had. We shot VERY late in the afternoon, so the kids were cranky, and we couldn't get them to sit still. We shot for about 1/2 of the expected time, and we're going to give it another shot early tomorrow afternoon. Definitely some lessons learned today, though, which is encouraging. C&C appreciated. As usual, I'll include my own critique with each shot. Please add yours. #1 I like this shot, but the DOF was apparently a little too shallow, as the kid in front is OOF. #2 I'm pretty happy with this shot, but it's a bit soft. Also could have used a reflector to light the left (their right) side of their faces. #3 I was going for this look, but the DOF is just a hair shallower than what I would've liked. #4 Love this shot, but it's pretty noisy. Increased ISO so I could use a faster shutter speed. #5 A bit soft, and kind of snapshotty, but I'm relatively happy with it.
