Description: My nephew asked me to come to the hospital to take a picture of his new baby girl. I see all >
My nephew asked me to come to the hospital to take a picture of his new baby girl. I didn't want her to look like she was in the hospital, so I gathered up a few things to help with that. I was 7 hours from my home so I had to make due.
Subject of photo
Composition & Perspective
Use of camera, exposure & speed
Color & Lighting
Depth of field
Spot on. The only thing I would change is maybe crop a little off the bottom because the excess white pulls focus.
Perfect and the b&w was a very good choice.
Hey again Charlotte. Well done! What a beautiful moment and what a great capture. Keep it up!
How to improve your photo
Balance your image. Especially in b&w where the contrast is often very apparent, if you have an overpowering element (like the white of the blanket) maybe try and make it less emphatic by cropping.
If you have a spot that has been burnt and pulls unnecessary focus (again the white of the blanket) don't be afraid to give it a once over in photoshop.
