    For what it is worth coming from me they all look great. What lens did you use? Did you use your flash or other light source?

    Yes my Sigma via wireless mode trough the umbrella and a YN-460 bottom right.
    There was also lighting from the skylight and the window on the side and the energy saver bulbs in the room.

    very nice even light. i cant believe you managed to get even light without a $400 flash meter !! WHAT !?!?!? lol

    all you need now is a small lightsource behind your subject to give some seperation between the person/ background. that little kid is getting cuter and cuter. alien stage is almost over now. lol

    Thanks Rooz. Means alot coming from you.
    Here's a copy and paste of the setup that I posted in Dyxum:

    I believe the umbrella is a white 32 incher. I jacked the stand up about 7' high pointed down at a 45 degree angle positioned at the left.
    It was done via the wireless mode with a Sigma 530 Super.
    Then I used a YN-460 at the bottom right pointed up at a 45 degree angle at 1/32.

    "My challenge was that the black cloth I used as a backdrop was 3 meters long but only 1 meter wide. And if you notice, there is a pinkish cast towards the right and that is because the room is painted hot pink.
    I probably need to do a better cloning job on the background of the first pic since I tried to clone off the creases on the cloth and it created different shades of black instead.
    I used the Minolta 28-135mm as well as the Sony 70-300G.
    "

    And yeah little Logan is looking less alien these days. He can hold up his neck about 80% of the time now. I guess by the time he is 4 months old he'll no longer be a bobble head!

    Just a question out of curiosity....why is a separation light/hair light so important?
    I kinda like how the hair fades away into the background!

    That third one is really cute! Nicely done. You should try a seamless white background now too!

    if you like the way it looks like that then its not important at all.

    I think I like the catch light in the eyes. I always try to get that when I shoot birds and animals. Just my two cents. I would like to see it that way to compare.

    She's my cousin.
    I may end up ruining the eyes if I try and PP the catch light from the eyes though!
