    Y'all are probably wondering what a darksider is doing here. :lmao: Im not good at taking photos of people, so this is one of my first attempts. Used natureal light, and a soft focus filter.
    This is my 3 year old great nephew Ethan.

    Good shot. I like his hand/arm in there to really emphasize the title.

    Very nice chiller. Might I suggest bringing the levels up on his face a tad? Or is this your way of hanging on to the darkside in this thread? :)

    Thanks so much Arch and anicole. I appreciate your comments.
    Arch...yeah.. I was not going to post it here. Felt kinda wierd crossing over. I have been asked to do a few portraits and weddings, and I said nah...not my bag. Guess Im losing $$$ too saying no. I know I would suck at it, so instead of ruining the best day of somebodies life, I will let the pros handle that.

    i think this is an awesome shot, chiller... i love the way his is pondering...and i think if you lighten it, it would take away from his pending sadness...

    maybe he wanted to go out and play..and couldnt...or maybe a favorite ball of his is out there, and he wants to rescue it, but the adults are not listening to him..??

    he is adorable... such a sweet face..and i would love to have his eyelashes...he is gonna break a bunch of girls hearts....

    this has to be one of the best protrait shots i have seen of a three year old, they are so hard to get still....

    bet alison will love this shot, chiller...(thats who i think of, on having a natural talent with people pictures...!!)

    i so wanna just lightly touch his little cheek....

    Thank you so much for your kind words April. I have another with the big ol eyelashes, which is kinda neat.
    Thanks again.

    Chiller, this is a great shot!
    Toddlers and children in general are very
    hard to catch just acting natural...I find
    them even harder to pose. IMO I think the darkness
    lends itself well to this shot. I would not
    lighten it up too much. But that's just me...
