    Man, is there anything you can't do well? :D:D:D Just discovered your site and it's very impressive work. I really enjoyed looking at your images.

    Not sure if you're looking for critique, but here goes. I think this shot is great, but would like to see some interaction between you three, like hands or some connection, to bring it from a good photo of three people to a photo of a family.

    On the other hand, that may be the best photo of a kid I've ever seen. :thumbup:

    Thanks April.

    Jazz, I'm always open to critique :)

    Thanks a ton for taking the time to stop by my site. I always appreciate people commenting.

    We were all barefoot, and started off with my Wife and I laying on our sides, with our heads close or touching, and our arms extended out around Davin.

    Well, after having to get up 10-12 times, chase Davin down, etc....this is what we wound up with :lol:

    I wasn't real happy with the light, but it worked. Well, it wasn't so much the lighting, but the shadow. Sicily ended up with a much stronger shadow under her nose than the rest. I didn't catch it till we were done. I'm guessing that's due to the position of the reflector? Setup was an AB800 w/octobox overhead on a boom at a slight angle towards us. Large white reflector in front.

    About as basic as I could get :)

    Hmm. I agree that shouldn't be happening. I would rather count on the main light to light that area, rather than a reflector.

    By any chance was the octobox pointing down, so the light isn't directly striking that area under her nose? If so, you may have to physically lower the boom a little and tilt the box up slightly. Subtle movements can make a big difference.

    Yes. It was pointing down and slightly tilted back. I'm guessing about a 25* tilt? That's why I brought in the reflector. You probably have it right, I needed to lower the boom a little to get some more direct light up front? Thanks for the feedback :)
