This is my first ever portrait session using an umbrella, and I like it. I was able to setup my lighting for this in just a few minutes, then all I needed was Cody to cooperate. He was super happy about being on his tummy for this, but he worked through it and gave me some real gems. I really like the way his expression is in this shot.

The lighting was an umbrella on camera left, just a bit higher than Cody. This was durin the day so some decent filtered daylight was coming in through the rundown does on camera right.

Shame about the crop through the hand but a very nice shot otherwise, good exposure, love his wee coat and his expression.

This is near cheating. A technically great photo with an adorable child is just an unfair advantage lol. Great shot.

needs more fill light on the right hand side or a harsher contrast between light and dark
