Here are a couple of shots that I'm really happy with how they turned out.
The first is my Nephew (6mts old) Shot with my k100d/50mm 1.7.



The Second is my son(10yrs) dressed for holloween..
Thanks for looking.

Well done

Being a dad of a 3 and 6 year old, I am a sucker for tight face kid shots....

Love the expression in the first... spot on sharp and good color... but the face makes it! I am not sure if it is the camera that is getting that response or the thumb of the adult that seems to be almost pushing thru to back of the baby

On the second, the uplight / shadows is perfection for that look. Plus the B&W is the ticket on this one.

He must have been pretty patient as a "model"... I can not get mine to pose right now...
Same lens on the second shot ? What are you lighting it with?

The first one is a great shot! The expression...the drool...hilarious!

I really like the lighting in the second one. Definitely adds some creepiness to the vampire....

Great shots

Hard to decide ..., both shots I like very much.

Congrats

Thanks Guys...
The reaction is definately for the camera and not the thumb ...
The lens in the second shot is a 135mm Tamron and its lit with a Vivitar 285 HV on the floor.
Thanks again.

Is that Tamron SP BBAR 153/2.8 lens? I had one and it was a really good lens. I just didn't like the stop down metering. If it was an "A" lens I'd probably still have it.

Its the Tamron BBAR 135/2.5 adaptall 2. Fully manual. However it only will go to f4 with the adaptall mount.(Strange).

Oh my god... the first one is PRICELESS!!! You really should consider submitting that one to a stock agency or 2...

I can just see the Ads it could be used for. ROTFLMAO

"You wanna do WHAT?????" would be a fitting caption...

The first shot is an amazing image ... put it this way ... even "so-called" pro photographers that are meant to be specialised in baby photography can't reproduce an image like that.

I am hoping to at least get one good shot of either of my nieces or my nephew.
