They were all so small - here's a larger one.


I feel like I'm getting better - still trying to learn my camera and a prime lens. Sharing a few photo's from last night. My baby is growing into a little girl much too quickly!

Cute pics! Your daughter is adorable.

The one piece of advice I would offer (and I'm just an amateur/hobby photographer) is to try not to angle the pictures so much. IMO, they are a little too horizontal and I feel like I have to turn my head to look at them, kwim? I don't mind a little bit of an angle in photos (some people don't like them at all), but these seem a bit too severe. Then again, if you like it, then by all means do it!

Thank you girls! I just LOVE this kid!

Laura, I know what you mean. I'm still trying to figure that out without going too far. When I turn the camera it's hard to know how far is too far until I've already taken it and look back. Are they any easy tricks for this? She's so quick to run and is constantly on the move - I'm not sure she's the best model to practice on lol

I'm also just shooting for hobby - wouldn't even call myself a photographer yet bc I don't feel I've earned the title! Much more work to do! Please always feel free to give honest opinions on things - it'll help me improve :)

Lookin good! Your daughter is an adorable model! I like the lighting in these and color is pretty good (a couple of them seem a bit cool to me but not bad). I agree with the PP about the tilts... I don't mind a tilt here and there, but it's a bit too much. I would also work on composition. Learn the rule of thirds and try to use it for a more appealing comp. For example. the last picture is adorable but it would be so much stronger if you cropped out some of the blown sky so her face was near the top of the image rather than in the dead center. Oh and work on getting eye contact from her as well!

Thanks Victoria! Those are great tips. This was a quick shoot right before bedtime at a park where a rugby game was going on so eye contact just wasn't happening lol I'll try practicing some more this weekend - it seems like when I get her out for pics she is interested in everything BUT me - like she see's me all the time and would rather look at the grass blowing lol maybe I need to try putting some stickers on my forehead haha

I'll post more pics soon using the advice I received here - thank you!
