Personal Portraits

I’ve been doing a lot of reading on natural light photography. The people that I’ve found through just generic searches don’t use any flash. I don’t know that I would be able to completely do away with my flash…but it’s a good goal. I think another thing that ensures sharp, crisp pictures without flash (for indoor photos) is a good fast lens. I’m looking at purchasing a 20mm 2.8 lens soon. I’ve also seen people using a 1.2 lens. I’ve been looking at B&H getting prices for those lenses.  Those images are amazing as that 1.2 allows alot of light in.

I took some of my oldest after a haircut she got…she looked so cute. The others are of my little one using only available light.

Meet little Eli

Okay, this little doll baby is the newest member of our family, sort of. lol He is my brother-in-law’s girlfriends grandson. Did you get that? I can call this little one family, right? Anyway, my mother-in-law came down with Eli’s mommy and grandma yesterday for a session with him. I tried a little of everything, lighting wise. In the ones you’ll see here, I used natural light from my window as well as my studio lights.

Okay, this is the hat that I got from The Children’s Place. Well, obviously newborns don’t wear 3-6 month hats yet. LOL This cracked us all up. Way too big. đŸ˜€
