Would butter melt?

By MrsMad  
Another photo from our home made studio a few weeks ago. This is Ellie our grand-daughter who is six and Kieran, our grandson who is two.

Had a light box at either side and a separate flash behind the children to illuminate the background.

Other than a bit of sharpening and removing of creases from the backcloth nothing else carried out.

All comments/critique welcome thanks for looking

Lovely picture, but bizzare because my little girl is also 6, got red hair, a HSM dress up and butter certainly would melt!!!

A really lovely photo, so natural and works really well against the white. Well composed, very childlike !

So much in common then Vicky? I am sure your little girl also knows all the songs and dances too.

It was Ellie's idea to do this pose, she has came up with a number of good ideas.

Thank you both for your comments.

Very nice, - a little more light to the front, or a relfector, - or lighten in Photoshop?

You mean that their faces could be better illuminated Willie?

Looks good Robbie, not sure what needs lightening so hopefully Willie will respond.

Very nice studio shot. I think that Willie woud like to see a slightly more high key image but it is a matter of personal opinion. Andy

Looks lighter than I intended and lighter than on my screen, - so make sure you monitor is calibrated!!

Thanks for your comments folks and the mod Willie. I can see that the red has been removed now.

Ian has made sure that our monior is calibrated.

Yes, Jacqueline I took about 80 shots I think. Ellie was very pro active in the photoshoot.
