    These are my babies. They are spontaneous triplets (1 every 8000 odds). Please give me harsh C&C as I want to be a good photographer. I am a newbie and have had the camera for 2.5 weeks. I am using Canon T1i with 50mm f/1.4. Thanks! I also used PP to add glowing dreamy effect on some of them.

    Are they identical? What are their names?

    They all seem to be out of focus to me. I'm not sure if this is a result of the PP, but it seems that they are just not in focus.

    Yeah, I copied the layer, gaussian blur, opacity at 75%. Plus the DOF is very shallow. I think i wont use that dreamy effect anymore. Picture 2,3 and 6 do not have that dreamy effect.

    They are not identical. Katherine, Margaret and Isabella.

    6 is probably the best shot of the lot.
    It has a nice "anti-abortion ad" feel to it.
    I like it.

    Beautiful girls absolutely, though the photos in my honest opinion are not "great".

    They don't pop. They're not super sharp. The compositions are ok.

    Thanks for the critics.. I will post non photoshop edited photos shortly. I was a little too PP happy. Hopefully they are a little better.

    I think the "dreamy" look you are going for is what happens when you use softer lighting.

    With a shallow depth of field I also find it hard to get that sharp focus. #6 is the best and the only one that is in focus - but it might be slightly out of focus, too. I, at least, would have to see the full size image to tell.

    I don't think these are bad for every day baby pictures and a start. I would say that you could start by working on making sure that the area of the picture you want in focus is in focus. Even wide open, something should be sharp.

    How about these? No photoshop. You also see skin blemishes.

    They look better as far as focus goes. I love the one of the feet.

    I seems like something different happened with the lighting on the first and fourth of the baby being held in your husband's? hands. I would go with whatever happened here with the lighting over the other two. The others are very orange and the lighting is very harsh.

    I would also try adjusting the aperature so that you can get the baby and hands sharp for this pose.

    You might try using light coming through a window for your next set of images and some homemade diffusers and reflectors. Sheer curtains to soften the light & white poster board or foil covered card board to reflect light back onto the babies.

    How old are they? Do they still sleep a lot (for naps, not at night - yea right).

    I'm just asking, because how cute would a baby dog pile be? LOL

    they are going to be 4 months in 9 days. But they were premies so they were about 2 months early :p. You got it backward. I was taking the picture and my wife was holding them LOL. Yeah, I was a little aperture happy. I wont do that again.
