Quoting T + T = A S G ♥:" After about 6 billion tries with DH, he had to go to bed so I had to bribe Autumn with a muffin to cooperate, ... [snip!] ... to cooperate, lol. This is the best I got, I had one of those 6 feet tall lamps resting on my shoulder on her face, hahahah."
Quoting 3LittleMonkeys:" TOOOOOOO FARRRRR! damn you. I want you to do our pictures. I was just telling Brandi how my dad had some quickies done at walmart and they are horrible even for their standards. "
Quoting ♥~Xan~♥:" Ehh..dont know if Ill be able to help you there I am seriously not photogenic, even though my kids are."
Quoting ♥~Xan~♥:" Right? He always thinks he knows, lol. I got some good ones, not completely happy with the ones of us ... [snip!] ... was no one to make them look at the camera so they'd be looking in random directions Ill be trying again tomorrow too."
Quoting ♥~Xan~♥:" Have you tried doing it during the day? Or you just want more dramatic lighting?"Would doing it during the day still get me the lights like that in the background? And without having to have a giant lamp on my shoulder, lol! I haven't tried it yet, I just forced DH to help me put up the tree today.
Quoting awesomebrandi:" I feel the same way. We are our own worst critic!"
Quoting Chuck Finley.:" I think I may just ask my friend to help me, he's a videographer and taught me how to shoot on a film camera. Hmmmm. I think that is a good idea. "

Quoting ♥~Xan~♥:" Yep! When I took photos like that I was in my garage with the door open. I just made sure not to add any fill light in pp, and I think I upped the blacks a little bit. No direct light also."Awesome! I'll try it tomorrow, then, thanks!
