Trying out the new camera

Yesterday I babysat one of our friend's children and I had the opportunity to play around some with my new camera.

Here are a few results.

The above picture is my favorite that I took, but please ignore the dog carrier in the background. I've been trying to find away to increase the shadows to make it disappear, but have yet to succeed without making the rest of the picture too dark. I don't have Photoshop, so that's not an option, but if anyone else has a suggestion please let me know!

I love this one too, if you look closely you can see everything but his eye is black and white. I love some of the tools in Photobucket.

I love sleeping babies!

As you might have noticed, I prefer black and white pictures when I'm photographing people/things.

I'll be updating on the rest of the weekend hopefully later tonight.

Oh you did so good with the photos! They are lovely. Babies are my favorite :0) If you download Picasa2 (its completely free) you can play around with the picture. I have Picasa and Photoshop, but I much prefer Picasa..I dont even use Photoshop anymore. It is A LOT easier to use. Let me know if you try it out & how you like it!

ADORABLE!!!! You did a great job taking the pictures :)

Even though it's very far away I've been thinking about babies lately, they are so cute!

black and white is great for babies. With the uneven skin tone, and redness that most babies have. The B&W really brings out the softness in their skin.

Great pictures! Love them!
