Photos of Dad & baby

I did another 'baby shoot' this week for some friends, there must be something in the water--everyone in Hood River, Oregon is having babies. Here are some of the 'winners' from the shoot:

Canon 5D, Canon 100mm f2.8 Macro, ISO 200, Shooting mode of Aperture Priority, Aperture of f4 (so there would be a little depth of field and baby & dad would both be in focus), 1/125th of a second shutter-speed (selected by camera), Exposure compensation 0, Flash off, Picture style of monochrome with Sepia tone, sharpness of 0.

Canon 5D, Canon 100mm f2.8 Macro, ISO 200, Shooting mode of Aperture Priority, Aperture of f2.8 (shallow depth of field), 1/250th of a second shutter-speed (selected by camera), Exposure compensation 0, Flash off, Picture style of monochrome with Sepia tone, sharpness of 0.

Canon 5D, Canon 100mm f2.8 Macro, ISO 200, Shooting mode of Aperture Priority, Aperture of f2.8 (for shallowest depth of field), 1/3200 of a second shutter-speed (selected by camera), Exposure compensation -2/3, Flash off, Picture style of monochrome with Sepia tone, sharpness of 0.

I pretty much followed the same 'formula' as my last baby shoot, but had Dad take off his shirt. You can find more info on the technique here.

Awsome Clint. I used one of your (er your wife's) hints on a baby photograph this last weekend to use a black cloth background. The problem was I was out of town and all we could find was a black dress. It worked though (ya, my wife's idea too)...
