    As far as I am concerned this is possibly thee best subject rofl!! JK!

    So here are a couple of my son Gavin.... I'll point out my ideas of the pros and cons of each after each picture.

    So I had a few goals in mind with this photo...
    1) Practice getting a photo from an angle from way above.
    2) The exposure triangle.... I've been practicing this a lot still and it is def starting to feel like the back of my hand finally!
    3) My focus.

    How I think I did.....
    1) Did well got the shot that I wanted.
    2) I think its ok......
    3) TOTALLY OFFF!! GOSH DARN Hahaha!! I thought I had aimed for the eyes! Well long story short obviously I got the hair line. 2 ways to fix in the future would be to close down a stop or 2 and use a different focus point.

    Honestly we were just playing around in his bedroom and he was being a goof so I was working on trying to capture shots of him jumping. His room has pretty decent light so I like to play around with my camera in there in manual. I have to say these are just way to grainy. I did not get the exposure triangle I feel like. I feel like with it sooc it was underexposed by 1 full stop. In order to fix that I should have upped my iso OR added flash. I also cropped it pp to get rid of some clutter on the outter edges and doing so I cut his hand off. I know its a no no but I did it with this one shot.

    I've been shooting in manual so that was one of the goals with this photos was metering right....

    So let me have it yal! As always Thanks!! :)

    I keep forgetting in the UK they are a nappy and not a diaper. I love #2, saggy diaper in all :) The idea of #1 is good (I've done some like this), but his face should be the focal point and his mouth is a tad out of focus.

    Shot 1 could have gone down to iso800 or aperture could have gone to F4

    You were shooting at F1.8 and too close you only have to move your body a fraction and you miss focus

    I was wondering why your ISO was so high as well, however I think the main problem is you were too close. Oh, potty training-I used to put froot loops in the toilet and let my son aim at them, heehee. I also went to the dollar store and bought a bunch of cheap toys for $1 each and everytime he went potty I let him pick something out of the bag :)

    Don't forget you would have to go to 1/60 if your not used to using slow shutter speeds you will get blur
