    What are you doing?

    I would have liked less bright light in the background. Shooting portraits of children in their natural environment to keep them looking natural is not always that easy.
    I used fill flash. Sigma 70-300 lens.

    Any C&C most welcome.

    What are you doing?

    I think the question about whether to shoot small children with the 'dribbles' at the corners of the mouth and/or running down their chin, is always a question for some thought. There is a an endearing quality to it. At the same time, it does tend to attract attention and cause you to focus on it. Since I'm not a portraitist, I don't have that dilemma.

    The expression is, however, gorgeous.

    Donald that is a very good question. With the "dribbles" you know the little one is teething. They do dribble more when teething and I think it makes them look more "natural". Maybe I should wipe them dry before shooting?????
