With all of the excitement, I almost forgot why I bought this camera to begin with

    ...and here he is.

    I just took this picture a few minutes ago. I was reading my 580EXII manual figuring out the flash I got the other day, and jumped over to manual to try and get the perfect shot of my son.

    And I think I got it.

    I added a slight vignette, otherwise no other PP was done.

    Thanks everyone. :) I'm quite proud of him. He will be 4 months old next week. He's growing so fast. I wanted to capture every moment I could.

    Did you shoot this with the 580EX II? If so, what was the shot info? And what was the flash set to?

    Did you shoot everything in manual and drag the shutter?

    Did you bounce the flash off the ceiling?

    It's a really nicely lit shot.

    I had the flash in auto mode, full power. I set the camera to f/4 (47mm) and 1/60 and the ISO was at 1000... previous setting I neglected to change. I bounced the shot off the ceiling.

    Thanks, I'm really proud of it!

    I have others in the set, I'll post them after Stargate. :mrgreen:
