'Our babies' Photo shoot

Inspired by Kerry from Oh So Amelia and her recent venture in to professional photography she has a facebook page. We decided it was about time to take some proper photographs of our babies. I'm by no stretch of the imagination a photography wizard but I do love the subject of photography. I own a little piece of photography beauty, that's my NIKON D3100. I will avoid using the big green auto button on top instead trying to get used to the Manual  option but this doesn't always work out .

Here is our set up, we choose this wall because there is two light sources which gave great reflections and shadows.

As you can see this was a family activity and Charlie loved having a go with his kidi zoom camera, of which I will be doing a review of soon.

For this shoot I had an ISO 3200 f4.5 and a shutter speed of 200

I have uploaded the creme de la creme. Out of 200 photos we got 8 goodun's, my wife took some of the good ones much to my disgust. 

My favorite her eyes get me every time

We loved taking these pictures and plan to do them more regularly to document the kids growth with much clearer pictures.
