My son Samuel. Shot with a Canon 550EX flash, light bounced off the ceiling. Hand held.

Not much processing involved. Converted to gray scale, then played with Levels. Cloned out some of his hair. Neat imaged to smoothen out the skin.

What a precious little photo. And he looks just like daddy :-)) All he needs now is a camera around his neck (ofcourse a custom sized one) :-))

Beautiful portrait photo. Keeper for sure.

You know, I keep pictures like this one of my kids so I can blackmail them in the future :))) Or, show them to their future spouses. (Or both :))))

I think I have officially hung out at DPC for too long, cause I know who's who in the Kid pics. Very well done. I especially liked the version of this with the Santa hat, and even wanted to copy the idea, but never got around to it over the holidays. Baby potraits don't get much better than this one. Cheers

you know he is going to regret this photo when you show it to his first girlfriend.

Nice, I like it. One thing though, at least on my computer screen, the dark portion of the hair (towards the back) makes it look like he's wearing a little yarmulka (sp?). The skintones and the eyes are really good. I'm so glad you didn't use the "glow" effect that is so common now, together with the "plastified" skin - it's much better this way.

Nice portrait. Good lighting. Maybe a little softer focus?

Gee...I wonder who took this. Nice shot, Jacko! The little guy is very photogenic.

What an adorable baby....this must be Jacko's shot I'm guessing, they grow sooo quickly don't they? love the black and white and the white background, it gives such a feeling of youth and innocense. 10

good baby pic, but needs some detail in the blanket.

Probably one of the best baby shots I have ever seen. Well done Jacko!

Nice portrait of a cute baby. 8

Jacko? What a cute kid and a great photo! Love the choice of black and white... andd the white background is nice... I'm thinking maybe of having this cropped so that Samuel fills the frame leaving less white and more baby...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Absolutely the perfect baby shot! The black and white is wonderful - makes it looks like the baby is floating on a cloud. Great work!

If I were this kid I would be so incredibly happy with this photo when I was a bit older. An excellent portrait, great pose, good lighting, good contrast, good b&w toning, nice background, good use of space, good angle. In my opinion the best photo of this challenge.

What an absolute CUTIE!!!!!!!!!

There's a pretty baby! Love the B&W treatment. The skin tone is perfect. The only recommendation is to modify lighting to get rid of head and ear shadws cast on neck and backdrop.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/01/2004 09:05:51 PM
hmmmmmm.... now WHERE have I seen this baby before. I wonder, I wonder. Nice shot Jacko.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is the cutest baby I think I've ever seen (next to my own that is) :) Wonderfully expressive and great in B&W!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/01/2004 07:13:19 PM
Well, I wonder who this little cutie is? ;-) Looks awesome in b/w. He is the cutest baby boy. I am glad to know that I will watch this little one grow up. Maybe our children will play together some day.

Adorable!
