I took these pictures of a friends baby and I am looking for some critique on them, other than my husband's, he is too nice.

I took them in NEF and RAW and I notice the RAW images show a color temp of around 6400. They seem to look better if it move the temp up to 7400ish. Why is this, and how can I take the pictures this way instead of having to do it in PP?

Thanks for any help! ~ Debbie

Hi,

you probably prefer 7400 to 6400 b/c you (like me) have a preference for "warmer" pictures.

Depending on the camera you shoot with, you can set a warmer setting to begin with, or even dial in the Wb directly (NEF suggests you shoot Nikon, but I don't know which one).

For the first picture, I'd prefer a crop that shows more of the baby's face.

For the second, the thing that stands out are the flash shadows. Shoot with bounce flash instead of direct flash to avoid those (you'll need an external flash for that).

I agree with the flash shadow comment, but I love the first pic.
