    I took this shot of Elijah a few nights ago. I was giving him a bath and he was having a lot of fun so I snapped a few shots.

    I had some WB issues w/ the lighting in our bathroom and didn't like the color of the tub insert wall behind him, so I took the easy way out and went w/ this b&w conversion. I like it.

    Great shot. Looks like he's saying..."Uhhh you mind...I'm trying to bath here".

    Thank you!

    Ah, yes, hi-key.. that's the word I was looking for. Thanks.

    Thank you! I definitely love the shot, might have to hang one in the bathroom somehow. =]

    Thanks a lot, I've rarely had much success shooting while he is bathing, but I got it right this time, I think.

    My wife mentioned that too, but I've no clue where that somewhere would be. Let me know if you have some idea. =]

    Hahaha, yeah I definitely got that look a few times. I eventually put the camera down and bathed him as he had expected me to.

    Anyone have any pointers on best process for hanging pictures in the bathroom? Gatorboard? I'm not going for archival quality and can simply re-print in a few years if it messes up due to humidity, etc.
  9. If you could.... colorize his eyes..
  10. Excellent conversion!

    I'm not a big fan of selective coloring, but I may try it. Thanks.

    Thanks Sonya!
