    Baby Spencer - 8 days old

    Gah! I LOVE these! Newborns are my absolute favorite sessions to look at. I hope to eventually be a newborn photographer when I decide to go into business for myself. I love the second shot... that's where the money is!! Great work! :thumbup:

    Very weird and don't know why this is happening...

    Try 1/200... that is probably your camera's sync speed. I suck at explaining things like this but you pretty much have to keep your shutter speed under 1/200 or 1/250 (depending on whatyour camera's sync speed is. Shutter speed doesn't affect the amount of light you're getting with strobes...

    Practicing in my home studio - C&C Please :)

    Lol!! That's so creepy. Doesn't surprise me, but still strange. :lol:

    Practicing in my home studio - C&C Please :)

    Ahahahaha! You missed my avatar AND my signature. You failed. :lmao: Thanks for the critiques! It really helps me figure out what I need to work on next. I don't like the last image either, I just posted it to see if this is what one of the previous posters was referring to by asking me to...

    Am I doomed? (70-200 f/4 lens)

    Oh, I'm definitely sending it to Canon. I just wanted to see if anyone else has had the same issue so I could see how expensive this venture is going to be. Especially for a lens that I'm almost never going to use.

    Am I doomed? (70-200 f/4 lens)

    I shipped USPS, priority. I didn't realize that it was the seller's responsibility to pay for insurance. Amazon only reimburses for a specific amount so that's just how I ship (though I always end up spending more to ship it somehow.) The box did look pretty beat up when I got the lens back, but...

    Deciding on business card photo's

    Numbers 1, 2 and 9 really stand out to me! Though I really like all of your images, so I'm not sure how much help I'll be :-P

    Am I doomed? (70-200 f/4 lens)

    Okay, without writing a book here, I bought a 70-200 f/4 about a month ago on craigslist (it's used, obviously.) I used the lens a couple of times and then decided that I'd rather have the 2.8 version (which I was originally going to buy... and I'm now currently kicking myself for going this...

    Practicing in my home studio - C&C Please :)

    My hair light - yeah... that was actually unintentional. I forgot to turn that light off and then I had an aha moment and thought "sweet, hair light!" but because I'm a dunce, I didn't adjust the power. But to be honest, I probably still would have gotten it all wrong. I definitely need help in...

    Practicing in my home studio - C&C Please :)

    Gah! I think the problem is my uncalibrated screen. That or I'm just blind. I know, I know... I'll get it together eventually. I do the same thing to my skin, It's so darn easy to blow out ginger skin! I do prefer your edit over mine, for sure! Thanks! And yeah, I was using my 24-70 and it was...

    No one is saying anything bad yet, which scares me just a bit! ;) I need some negativity up in here!!

    Practicing in my home studio - C&C Please :)

    I was itching to do some kind of fashion-ish type of shoot so I could practice with my strobes - I'm still learning how to use multiple strobes effectively (correctly?), so please feel free to tell me how I can improve. I know some of the poses look awkward, there are some really funny ones that...

    Tips for water drop photography?

    When I attempted the water drop shot, I found it easiest to fill a ziplock bag with water and rig it so it was suspended above the bowl I was working with (I'm pretty sure I clipped the bag to a light stand or something.) I took a needle and poked a hole in the bag and the drops were pretty...

    Does her skin appear "faek", "over-processed", or "plastic"?

    What was she doing messing with Ken's bike anyway?? I wouldn't tell him if I were you. He's a wife beater. :lol:

    Does her skin appear "faek", "over-processed", or "plastic"?

    She doesn't look proportionate. Maybe a bit too much of liquify tool on her legs? :sexywink:

    Another Maternity Image for C&C

    Okay... so here's my second attempt at this. Still didn't get the results that I wanted, but is it any better? I had TWO fans blowing but the material is just too heavy. Brittany1 by RoockPhotography, on Flickr Brittany3 by RoockPhotography, on Flickr Brittany4 by RoockPhotography, on...

    Best camera stores in Florida?

    Colonial Photo & Hobby has pretty good deals. They are priced much lower than most of the other photo stores in Orlando. Great service, too.

    Another Maternity Image for C&C

    Every time I try to do "moody" shadowy lighting, I end up blowing out the highlights. Grr!
