NB: Hrm. Not satisfied w/how LiveWriter handles images and sharpness, which's pretty evident in these images (it distorts rather than maintain the websharpened images). Will have to try to look into that when I get home, forgot about this problem when presceduling these images. Sorry!
I so need to get that frame fixed – I’m thinking…gold…black…silver…turquoise?
Look at that handsome young man!
This is a bit adorable as well, don’t ya think?
Eli’s mother also joined us.
The green one’s mine, the turquoise is Eli’s.
The more kids in one frame the less easier is it to get them to play nice and smile. But seriously – who’d want a “sit-still-and-smile” picture when you can get one like this; full of life and feelings?

Wrapping up with one of the (few) proper images Kids I tell ya!
I gotta admit - I don't really "feel" studio-photographing is "me". Yes, it's a fun variation from how I usually shoot - it's not like I'm shooting in studio like, all the time, so in that retrospect it's nice to have the chance to learn more (although I am still nervous in studio, leaning towards the safe instead of daring to experiment w/the lighting - I mean - I'm not there for me, but those being photographed..no? But shooting safe is just that. It's quite easy. Yes - I am sure those who know lightning amongst you will snort and go pfft because safe is boring and not what lightning is about and lightning is about shadows (to which I do agree) and I'm doing rookie mistakes I don't even see myself, and I know).
Still, shooting docustyle is more me - I am more comfortable when I do these sessions because I feel more confident that I am good at the close to impossible, hopeless lightingssituations, I know I can work around this and that...hm. Ahwell. Didn't mean to digress really, because every time I get to photograph in a studio I am happy because experience is the key to feeling confident and start experimenting more..methinks. Anyways!
Hope you enjoyed your pressie, Eli!
Ps: To those w/D700 out there, do you experience trouble w/the images being overly magentaish? I'm fixing most of that post-procession for photosessionimages, but am wondering if it's just me metering wrong or if it's indeed a "feature" of the camera/processor.
