I'm a little monster

By keppy      
I grabbed this pic while trying to get a passport style photo of my daughter. I over-did the lighting from behind us - that together with "pose" of hers made a really cute picture.

Hi Kevin, this is really a cute little fella. however, please don't take itnthe wrong way when i say that to me it looks like a snapshot of someone's baby - of course it will always be precious to those close to it, but as a photo I just see it as a snapshot. I'm certainly no expert in portraiture the main failing here (apart from the harsh shadows which you've mentioned yourself)is that you've broken rule number 1 - the eyes aren't in focus. Sorry to be so harsh, as I say you'll always treasure it anyway

Hi, totally agree with the above .. nice snapshot, but thats it. Harsh shadows dont do it any favours .. eyes arent sharp etc .. would be much better using reflector/s to get a more even spread of light ..

Well it made me laugh anyway! But I agree with the comments above.
