18 months old!

Postby victoria_1024 » Wed Oct 20, 2010 7:50 pm

Let me start by saying that I got zero cooperation on this photoshoot, haha. Jackson decided he wanted to stand right next to mommy at all times, and I was shooting with my 85mm so that was not going well. I had this beautiful scenery and he wanted nothing to do with the camera, lol. But mommy goggles love the pictures so I guess that's all that matters!

That being said, of course CC is appreciated. :)

Haha, that first one is great! I like the silhouette too. The colour doesn't bother me at all in the one with the setting sun, he just looks like he based in the golden light :)

Totally off topic but I've been meaning to tell you I love your choice of name for your baby girl. My eldest step-daughters name is Vivienne Leigh!

Thanks for the CC Kylie! And thanks for comments on baby girl's name. Vivian Leigh is the actress on Gone with the wind. ;) Vivian is my great grandma's name, and Lee is my middle name so that's how we came up with it... plus I just really like Vivian for a name!

Our Vivienne was called that just because they liked Vivienne and her Mum's middle name is Leigh. I like it and she will never have the same name as half the girls in her class at school.

He's such cutie!

I TOTALLY know what you mean about those 18 month shots! I'll share mine here too, they sucked!
I figured out the issue was that I had my camera somehow mistakenly set to MATRIX not SPOT metering mode, hence the chaotic exposures. :roll:
I might just go out and do them again this week.

I LOVE that name for a girl! I've seen GWTW a million times, lol. And my middle name is Lee too :)

You'll get a silhouette when you've got an heavily backlit scene and you expose for the sky rather than the subject so the subject will be terribly underexposed. :)

Thanks for the comments guys!

Kylie is right about doing silhouettes. :) Expose for the sky behind your subject so the subject is way underexposed.
