I took one of the previous photos and added a border effect in order to minimize the impact of some of the props and put a little more focus onto the subject.

Additional comments would be appreciated.

I think a vignetting filter would really add to this. I don't know what they are called in PS (I use PSP), but I normally just do it by hand with either a burning or a darkening layer, and manually spray the outside of the frame darker. That will help to shift the focus away from the props and more toward the baby.

Thanks. I'll keep that in mind.

BTW, I did give adding a bit of blur to the blue, it didn't look right. Maybe I just need to play around with softening that a little more.

Nice Images Bob, I ike the 2nd one a little better as its more Natural.
I ve just bought myself a 3rd Elinchrom Digital light which will alow me to be a bit more creative with my Lighting.
I may have cast a wee bit of a Shadow across part of your backdrop, but its your photo mate and its allabout opinions.

A Bonnie Bairn though !

I think they're great. Cute kid, nice color. Maybe fill that shadow a little more or lower the umbrella a tetch so it doesn't fall on his shoulder? And the composition might be a little bottom heavy; don't know how much you can crop without having it look weird though...

But I don't actually know what I'm talking about. I had to think about what a critique would be, so they must be pretty good. ;)

I like the shot. I purchased a bucket like that to do the same type of shot. On E-bay you can get large plastic bubble that would look so cute. I will try and find the link for you.

I think you did a wonderful job.

Here's a couple of shots of a recent baby shoot I did. Is there something I could/should have done differently?

Setup: Single Studio Flash, with umbrella off a little to my right, reflector to the left of the child.

Is there anything that would make these better?
