Shot while Caitlin was breastfeeding (didn't interupt her meal too much). Some sheets of white A4 paper laid over her to mask off area, and various pics tried with both my wife and I holding her hand. Chose this one as I liked the lighting the best.

Lighting was a ceiling light, SB800 fired remotely and on-camera flash at -2.

Who knows how this will do, suspect it will be fairly cliched, but I really like it. I know I chopped the top of my finger off, but hey.

Nice composition. Nice B&W choice, but please consider adjusting levels so the image doesn't feel too midtone gray.

nice focus and sharpness but dead space to right isn't good.
squarer crop would be better - 6
