    Wonderful pose and expression. The main comment that I would have on this one is that the eyes have gone a little flat on you. To get a little more life into them try reflecting a little light back at Justin off a piece of white card board or some other type reflector. This should put in a catch light and give him a sparkle in those big eyes to go with the big grin.

    Re: Window Light Portrait

    Here a couple more that I took over the weekend while in Nashville. I caught Jack in front of a large window with morning light streaming in. Jack like most little ones can change moods in a hurry here are a few different moods.

    Two more for the Oh These are Great Album. That little guy is always so animated I love pics of him. Love the way your colors really pop. I see he is in his favorite shirt too. On the ones I posted of Jack I was using the 28-70 f2.8. It is pretty much my standard lens and stays on the D70 most of the time.

    I'll be getting my kids outside today, so they won't be windowlight, but they will be current.

    Oh bless you OT. It's so nice to know how much I am appreciated. Thank you.

    Here's a funny one. I was trying to stop the glare in Danielle's lenses and told her tilt her glasses down a little. She came up with the pose. Cheeky little monkey LOL.

    Did you think of trying a polarizing filter to remove the glare?

    Re: Window Light Portrait

    I've not posted many images here, and I guess it's time I started. Allow me to introduce my nephews Michael and his big brother Matthew (though only one fits the subject):





    As you can see, Matthew has become my "photographers helper". That's my Canon A520 he's using. Little guy gets some decent shots too, though composition isn't really his thing yet.......

    Thank you OT.
    And y'know what? They are my favourite subjects. It's not just a biased opinion either.
    They are incredible. A pleasure to photograph.

    With a subject like that why would you want another model? Wonderful photo, I'm impressed with the sharpness and the wonderful depth at f8. Nice window light portrait.

    Thanks. I'll be shooting a bunch of black, white and gray M&M's with my daughter that she got me while in New York this weekend. I'll have to resurrect the B&W for color thread later.
