p.1 #2 · A little family shoot


A quick little edit.
I was reading the thread that was started by Ron about the decline in forum posts and Steady made a statement that it's good to learn about a shot and a little backstory about the shoot.

Well I couldn't agree more as that's how I learned a lot over the years.
Studio lighting was a couple of setups, but mainly I use a large softbox either camera right or left and a fill light just behind the camera. This setup works well for most situations but sometimes with larger groups like the last photo I move the fill light on the other side of the camera...It creates a bit of a flat light but most poeple don't care about that they want to see themselves nice and clear.

The outside ones are all lit with a Nikon Sb -900 shot through a softbox. You can see the direction of light, it's usually always at 45degress angle...I usually set it at 1/16th power f4 and iso 400 and 1-/160s for the shutter and work from there. I change shutter speed depending on what ambient light I want.

Howdy,

Quick Comments (I am in a hurry now)...

Nice photos!

Nice looking family! Good subjects. The family looks like they enjoyed the photo shoot and the kids mostly have very good expressions in the photos...like they are having fun and gives me the impression of a nice family together.

The blue eyes on the little kiddo really stand out.

I prefer the outside shots.

Some quick suggestions:

Image 3: Show hands (less headroom, show hands of infant with different framing of shot)

Image 7: try to show legs.

Thanks for posting in this forum!

Nice overall set. A few of the outdoor shots show some extremely out of focus weeds in the foreground due to depth of field. Not much you can do about 7 and 8, but in 6, I'd crop out the one (it looks like a smudge) above your logo. That's an easy fix to finish an otherwise good photo.

Lovely family! 7, 8, 9 are great, but 6 really shines.
