    Was going for expressions when she least expected.

    #1 I know she is facing forward, and not the ideal pose, but I like the expression.

    The description for the Beginner's forum changed a while back, such that the Beginner's forum is no longer a Gallery or C&C forum section.

    The TPF Galleries are found here - Photo Galleries- Photos submitted by members for general display or critique.

    Didn't know it had changed, last I read beginners are not allowed to post in the general galleries. I would remove this if I could and post there?

    How much reading have you done on the theories of composition, beyond the RoT's?

    I have done quite a bit which is why I pointed out especially in the first one that she was facing forward, but I like capturing expressions with babies trying to crawl off my studio.

    On all of the indoor shots.. the whites of her eyes have a cyan cast, has to come from post! What did you do?

    Are you using on camera flash (pop-up?) The highlights around her eyes / face in the last one you posted are strange.. not attractive.

    Yeah, her eyes don't look like that on the outdoor one? I used a flash with a DIY diffuser (white card over flash) rest of her body was on same exposure...I did play around with colors in the color balance in PS trying to get the colors to pop, so maybe a combo of diffused flash, studio lighting and adjusting colors in post is why her eyes look that way and the outdoor one does not...thank you for pointing that out...I actually thought she had beautiful eyes and long thick eyelashes and personally thought the indoor one's looked better than the outdoor because her eyes didn't do that and I processed the same way however I didn't use a flash outdoors. So are you saying these are awful? ;0

    If you are using "studio lighting" which I assume means some sort of constant light.. you should never mix flash with that unless you gel the flash to match! If you are using the pop-up flash.. get a real flash.. and use it OC. My advice would be to get rid of the "studio lighting" entirely.. it is usually junk!

    #4, I would toss... unless the original looks better than your edit. Maybe you could post the original?

    The rest? Nothing I would present to a client! ;)

    I had already moved it.

    There was/is no restriction on beginners posting in the Photo Galleries sections. None of those descriptions have been changed.
