Just a dad trying to snap some photos of his girls. Here are some of our fall photos! Advice / critiques welcome!

The lower camera angle of #1 & #2 makes me favour them, with #1 being my pick for best of the set.

There seems to be some variation in the skin colours of the older girl.

G'day mate,
A lot of us start like this, taking photos of our kids. A couple of cuties you have there.

It looks like these weren't posed and you went for a natural look, which is fine.

May I suggest as Jim mentioned that you get down to their level and shoot from there. Also shoot from a distance with a lens shot close to wide open to get a smooth OOf background and isolate the little ones so they're the main thing that stands out in the frame. A focal length of 85mm and over would be ideal.

Keep at it and your results will get better. Your half way there with two beautiful kids.

Regards
Bud

My wife always tells me I need to take lower angle shots! Several of the pictures had bad lighting / color. It looks like I was a little off on the post-processing.

Thanks! They must take after my wife. I mentioned to her that you two said to take lower shots...I'm pretty sure I'll be getting slaps to the back of my head when I'm taking photos from now on.

I've been thinking about adding a 24-70 to replace the 28-75, but maybe I'll add a 70-200 first instead. I suppose I could get an 85mm to tide me over while I wait or just use my 100mm macro.

my advice: watch the hands and feet-keep them in frame
