I recently did a photo shoot of this 4 year old who was a dream to work with. I couldn't belive his long attention span during the shoot. Here are some of the shots. Critique is welcomed.

Hi, I'm not sure the flowered background was a good setting as this is a little boy. However, your work is good!Nice color and clean crisp shots. Again the flowers more or less caught my attention before the subject. I normally try for more of a boy-ish back setting. If it was a little girl, I think it would have fit fine. If you notice my profile picture, it is of a little boy as well but a huge difference in the background. I did think the little boy holding the book was a great idea! Good job!

I really hope you don't mind me throwing in a few I done of a 2year old. The last one is the only one that is not edited. The mother had some idea's and this is what she came up with as the editing. I wanted something a little different. But still turned out great!

Nice to hear from you. It's interesting to hear how different peoples ideas are. Photography is so subjective, you can have 5 different people view it and have 5 different opinions.

The shot of the 4 year old with the steps and the rose bush over the walkway made the finals when I entered it in the BetterPhoto.com monthly contest. There were 14,900 entries and I made the finals with that photo. This is only the 4th time I've made the finals. I get many Editor's Picks but it is hard to make the finals. Once you make the finals they then choose 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. I hope someday to get one of those. So I just keep entering the contests and keep my fingers crossed. As a rule I usually shoot portraits very tight but that shot I loved the backdrop and wanted to try something different. That is a neighbors backyard and she let me use it to shoot these portraits. This would make a perfect spot for a wedding photo.

I really hope you didn't get the wrong idea. I wasn't trying to talk bad about your work and believe me, you have a great eye in photography. I believe it did make the finals as it is very well setup, I was just giving my opinion on it being a male child and having a flower setting as his background... I do agree it would be a perfect spot for wedding photographs as well. I bet if you could get a couple to go there after a wedding for shots, you'd have to win atleast 2nd or 3rd in that contest you are speaking of. I think I'd like to check out this site you are talking about... Thanks for the information. And keep shooting as well as posting...

Great shots, the first one on the steps is my favorite, beautiful setting. Be careful your neighbor doesn't start charging you ha ha.

No I wasn't offend at all, it is just a fact at how differently we all look at photos, it's the same way at the camera club competitions. Some members like the way a certain judge scores and others don't like that judge as well. It's all in the eye of the beholder. Some of the judges like your style while others will give you a lower score, but in the end their critiques is so important and listening to the critique of all the other entries is such a fantastic learning experience. I try to enter as many competitions as I can. It always feels great when you win a ribbon.

Happy shooting.

Alright, I just wanted to make sure that we was completely on the same page. I have full respect for everyone's work! I just didn't want anyone at all to think bad of me... I know I'd sure like to get something along those line of winning 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. That would be awesome... Wish you luck!!!

I have enjoyed them. These are well produced journalistic images. Subject appears natural and unposed. The viewer shares in a private moment with the subjects.

Kathy is right about it being an honor to make the finals at BetterPhoto.com. The talent there is astonishing.
