Cheez it's! Cheez it's!

Some of my readers will get the youtube reference title lol.

I am sure you are all tired of looking at my attempts to learn lights so I promise I will post something new soon.

I am having the hardest time with processing these shots...they don't need much (maybe the brightness pulled back a bit) but I feel weird not doing anything. I am custom white balance too but they look a bit off-blah! I feel like I took a step back this time. If anyone has any advice I would love it!

Here are a few shots of my baby from the other day though, if nothing else I love all his expressions. They wen't taken for good comp or anything really just practicing.

I don't know why but on my computer sometimes if I use a dark background paper (but not black) it sometimes looks a little pixelated...but it always prints fine. Weird.

Cheez it's always guarantee a smile, I did a little honey action on the first one.

Boy, I think they look great. Not sure the "rules" when it comes to studio stuff, but to my eye, they look good.

I love everything about these pictures. And the boy is quite cute himself!

Reds said...

You have the cutest model! He seems to love the camera!

Lauren said...

Lovely Bobbi and he is such a doll (and good sport for posing for you)! To me they do look a little "hot" in places. Not bad, but like they have a bit too much light in spots on his face.

Becky said...

A JMK shot from you is NEVER a JMK shot, Bobbi. I would have Keats and Blaze withdrawal if you didn't post them. His expressions are killing me here! :-D

My favorite are your 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. I'm no expert, but the first looks like it might have some blown out spots. All look like you got good catchlights, not pinlights, which sometimes happens in flash, so I'm thinking you're doing a good job with bouncing the flash, rather than direct? And he is the most adorable, cutest, sweetest, little guy ever.

I think they look really GREAT girl. So I am not sure what you are talking about. Do you have a studio too now Bobbi? I think you have totally nailed these. The color is fantastic.
