Yeah, it's been a long time since I've put any new photos up! I'll spare you an excuse. I got a background stand for Christmas, so today I cleared out the dining room and set it up during nap time. Rory helped me get everything figured out. I've never really had a huge desire to do background shoots, but the frozen tundra called North Dakota has forced me to do something different. The lighting in the dining room is actually really good. Check out those eyes. I didn't have to do anything to them in post processing. So far, so good.
Edited: Here is the SOOC (straight out of the camera) version of the first photo, resized and sharpened for web only. You can see it was slightly underexposed, and there was a weird color cast coming off my blue walls in that room.
Someone please tell me what to do with her hair! It is looking so awful these days.
Last year about this time, we took Valentine's day photos with a lollipop like this. I was going to post one of them, but I actually cringed when I opened them back up. Yikes! I'm definitely a year older and wiser in the photography department!
Notice anything missing? I got three or four frames in when she took a big bite and the top half of it shattered! I love her expression in this one, though!
