Somewhere onthese forums (canNot locate the thread to save my life) a child photographer mentioned their favorite baby technique was extreme closeups faces, using a shallow depth of field and "pin sharp" eyes.

I tried my hand at this with my 11 month old son. I really thought I had isolated the eyes as the focus point, but as you can see it usually ended up being his nose and/or upper lip. Any suggestions?

Other than that, what do you think?

#4. I think I nailed the eyes on this one, it just isn't my favorite expression.

The first shot is great! I like the way the focus is 'before' the eyes, gives a nice twist to the normal 'eyes' in focus' shot. Great job.

Great name you chose for your son as well, I've never met anyone with the same name as me before!
