My youngest turned 3 today. I managed a few shots - trying to capture the emotion. Not sure they are up to the standards on here, but its good to share eh?

#1






#2






#3






#4






This one was taken at the weekend, just before his party

#5






#6 - the cake my wife made - clearly not a people photo, but it rocks so what the heck!






Finally a few fun ones making use of one of his presents - a Batman mask

#7 - Older Brother






#8 - Batmum






#9 Birthday Batboy






(had a bit of fun with the processing on these last few...)

Thanks for looking

Adam

Howdy,

I think you did a nice job on these.

And an especially nice job on the cartoonified images.

The BatMom made me smile.

The last image made me chuckle with amusement.

Well done.

Nice set Adam, looks like a good birthday. They're up to standards and thanks for sharing. Favorites include 5 and 8, but not sure if you wanted critique.

Cool, here are some quick thoughts.
2 - I'd like a little more depth of field to better include mom
3 - Maybe try swapping b and c? It would probably tell the story better, depending on your adherence to PJ
4 - I'd like to see this from the other side, with your boy's face being the main subject
5 - Nice portrait
6 - good effort Mom
8 - I like the negative space and the shadows on the wall
9 - cool processing

Thanks. All good stuff. On 4 I was intending to do from the other side but It all happened too quickly. I went to turn the light off and as I turned round they were about to blow out the candles. I only just got the shot. I asked for a retake but the moment had gone.

I see what you mean on 2. They are in the order they were taken though.

5 and 8 (especially 8) for me. I also like the candlelit shot.

I would like to see even more available light shots (if you have enough available light, that is!)

Thanks Benee. Can you elaborate on your comment about more available lights shots? I'm not sure what you mean. Cheers.

it looked like you used flash on some of these ( 1 2 and 3 but I could be wrong). I would say, if you can, to use window light ans see what you get.

For example the light in 5 is very nice and I suspect it is window light. I would love to see more of this kind of lighting!

Ok thanks.

1-4 are lit by overhead ceiling light (5 x energy light bulbs). It's winter here and it was still dark when we got up!

5 is natural light and I love the light that area of the house gets in the morning. I have several shots taken in this area over the years and they have been on here in the past.

I have a couple more from this shoot which I'll share later.

Here are a couple more













Actually, I've just noticed the light is not as good "higher up" the room. Must remember that...
