    Hi Cwilt

    That is beautiful!

    You have a very beautiful daughter and you make the most of her for your photography.....and why not!

    I really like this shot and only wish my little girl (5 years old) would sit still long enough to get a shot like this.

    Did you deliberately pose the shot or just catch the moment....either way great.

    Frame and hang I think!

    Very best wishes

    Nice shot, Charles. The texture of the background does well to complete a very nice image of your daughter and her pal. One of those perfect images for the grandparents.

    Hi Charles. That's an excellent pose & shot of your daughter. Sure wished you would'a gotten the dogs attention right then, so we could see his/her eyes too!

    I have to agree with everyone else, that is a very cool shot of your daughter...
  8. Very cute shot of your daughter. Almost three dimensional. Excellent color.
  9. I see your light setup is working out. And another lovely picture to add to your daughter series.

    Great work thumbs up,

  10. Aaaawwwww! :smile:

    Very well done: there is a certain sweetness that comes through.
  11. This is some seriously good color and j...u...s...t.. the right sharpness.
    Now I want to know the camera, lens, and etc. :smile:

    Thanks everyone for the wonderful comments.

    I started out with a pose but soon they wanted to do thier own thing and I just went with it.

    I tried but I didn't want to loose the moment so I didn't try to hard.

    I do like having strobes now. This is with one strobe again, but this time I had my meter with me.:wink:

    D2x, 1/250@F8, ISO 100, 50mm f1.4
    1 Strobe with large softbox metered about 2 stops above ambient.
    Raw Magic Lite for RAW conversion
    Photoshop for cropping and sharpening.

    No color work was done.
  13. outstanding in every way!

    Beautiful picture. I can't ever get lighting like that indoors. Could you explain your setup a bit more perchance?

    There really wasn't much of a setup. They were sitting on a stair way that was lit by morning light. I used the light meter to measure ambient. Then I added a strobe with a large softbox, 3 foot by 4 foot, and metered it about 2 stops higher. Set the camera for that and started shooting.
  16. *Gasp!* Oh no... not the ordinary 50mm!! :wink:
    Hard to beat that little lens, isn't it! And don't just love a softbox for that wrap around the light look! :biggrin:

    Yep, just that cheap, slow focusing little prime.:wink: It is my favorite lens. My 85/1.4 is great but still use the 50 more.

    I struggled with umbrella's but with softboxes I have much better control. Make it large, and diffused for portraits.:smile:
