blue eyed caleb

Remember teeny little Caleb? He is a bright-eyed almost seven month old now and cute as ever! My favorite thing about photographing this age is that wobbly I'm still learning to sit up pose. You end up with a lot of face-plant photos but the ones that work really work (and don't worry -Caleb didn't wobble off the side of that rocking chair once!) What an adorable little man. More of those blue eyes will be over here later today.


  1. I looked at Caleb's sweet pics on your other site. What kind of lighting do you use with your black backdrop? Do you have external lights set up or is it a flash attached to your camera? By the way, I got a Nikon D90 a week or so ago but haven't had time to get to know it yet. Keep up the good work.

  2. Sharon,
    I used my Nikon Speedlight attached to my camera (when you're ready to expand your equipment I'd recommend it for your D90)
    The Speedlight allows me to bounce the flash off the ceiling or a wall for a more natural effect but I'm still learning to use it well. To get the backdrop that black I make sure to expose for the face (I pretty much always use spot metering and focus modes) and later I go in and darken the shadows in editing f I have to so it's completely black -and I had to retouch a few stray fuzzies on the cloth as well.
    Have fun with your new camera and send me pictures!
