Ken, that looks pretty good! Certainly muchbetter than mine but the ones I posted had no post processing because I wanted you guys to see what they looked like out of the camera.

Can you tell me whatyou did to get to what you posted? I have PS but man what a steep learning curve! I am intimidated by it. I think I am going to takea class next spring,. they have several at the community college.

I think I am going to follow up on a suggestion I was given. I am going to take some test shots:

1. Closer to the subject and use the kit lens

2. Use the cameras flash but make my own diffuser by simply covering the flash with a square made from a plastic wal mart bag.

I am attaching two pics, both taken in a room with room lighting. The first is normal flash, the second with my home made diffuser.

Again, other that the crop these pictures are straight out of the camera

Comments?
