Wow! Great pics!!! Who's the little boy? And how in the world did you get him to sit still? My 8 mos. old is at a great age for photographing, but my 20 mos. old does not stop. Try getting the two of them together...ha!! Anyway, I'm a newbie and taking my first photography class. I am learning so much from this forum, although I always feel intimidated by everyone's photos here. I guess with patience and practice, I will become better and more knowledgeable. Welcome to the group!

Who's hoping to own a digital slr very soon!

Well Thanks. The little boy is my 6 1/2 month old Son Dillon. He is extremely well behaved and sits quite still. I have taken pics of him from day one and he has got quite used to the camera now. It also helps if his mummy is standing by my side (or hubby, or anyone else close in the family), that way you get some lovely expressions and not just have him looking in the camera all the time. Also, as I am sure everyone will agree, if you use digital, you can take that many more photos to get the right one!

Well, I forgot to say he is also adorable!!! I love this age--6 mos. until around 15 or so when they become "independent"...lol. Take advantage of this time for sure, b/c when he's a toddler it's so hard to get a decent pic. ALso, I absolutely loved the one of him with the different pics and names? How did you do that? Photoshop? I only have ps elements, would I be able to do this? Thanks!

Thanks for your nice comments. I am sure your little ones are just as nice. We do value every minute at the moment. We see our friends trying to push their toddlers into growing up so fast but we try to "Press pause" . The effect WAS done in Photoshop 7, but I just looked and I think you can do this in Elements. Use the Lassoo, select inverse, Levels, new document, free transform etc.... :shock: . This may sound a bit confusing, and is too much to explain here. Just play, practice and have fun. All the best and good luck.

P.s. Post your efforts here once you have "Mastered" it.
