Barthold,

Babies are here to do one thing, charm their elders. Your baby does an excellent job of that. Aloha

For the interested, this was done with three flashes mounted with lumiquest pocket bouncers. One flash is straight one, one on the left side about 45 degrees (left in the picture), and one lighting up the background. Lens settings are 50mm F5.6.


Any comments on how to improve really appreciated! I wanna learn :-)

It looks like you have the reflection under control, but I would move away further from the background (if you have the room)!

... you don't need to light it up if it's just plain

Thanks NHL. Moving away further from the background is a good idea. It can be done, I just need to clean up the room a bit :-)

I would also increase aperture so that the light drop off faster and doesn't go as far back...

Hi NHL,

You mean light drop-off towards the background? Increase the aperture will also increase the DOF, which means I need to be further away from the background.

Anyways, how's this?
