Yes, another little pentaxian. Finally got a chance to give the little guy a photo shoot. Fairly happy with the results considering I never shoot people or babies for that matter. This was shot handheld laying on the floor. Lighting was with just the ceiling light looks harsher on his face here than in the original.

Anyway this is my wifes favourite so I thought I would chuck it up for some gentle C&C. Anything I can do better? Any baby shooting tips? Cheers in advance.

Congrats! You have a beautiful son!

That is a very nice peiod to be in right where you are now, i loved that time....

About the picture i feel that the sepia is a tad to much. Other than that, its a great picture!
