Daughter Number 2

By shanegreen  
I just got a MacBook Pro - after always being a PC man. This is my first attempt at workflow with Aperture 3. My daughter is a keen little model and she is only 14 months old.

As well as the usual levels and curves I used the skin smoothing tool in Aperture - did I overdo it?

Errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr It looks natural to me, lol. I know nothing about manipulating imaging software. The light which comes from the back of her head illuminating her hair adds extra grace to your model. Aperture chosen blurred the background but the colours of the back are also evident on the foreground. Nice shot, genuine expression from her. A picture to treasure in her adulthood. Please let us know where did the light appearing in her eyes came from, I thought it was on camera flash but exif data says flash didn't fire.

Window light behind her head and on camera flashgun 90 degrees right bouncing of wall for fill in light. I like it but then I would because its my daughter! I hope that others like it too.

Wow! This is about the cutest little girl I have ever seen - and what a great photo. Love her hair blowing and the warm light.
