to much 20 year old fashion attitude for a little girl. are you living through her. Mothers do this quite a bit. Shoot the child and what they do, Not the princess. Thats my advice.

Thank you....I am her mother, and the only way she would take pics for me if I dressed her up.  I'm not going to lie...I do like  seeing her like this...but I agree....should be more lifestyle shots as a child.  :o)  Do you also have suggestions for me for nailing focus?  I use spot focusing using back button.  I love the bokeh, so I use my 50MM prime lens....try not to jack up the ISO...and try to keep the shutterspeed at 1/200 and up when shooting my kids.  I have a Nikon D7100.

Yes, Like I said and have said to thousands of folks over the years. you MUST learn DOF. it really is the basis of Photography. My first concern on every shot I take no Matter the subject is what Do I want in focus. then exposure then composition and soon these 3 things will come naturally and in a Instant. Kids are active, they Move , you gotta move . If Im shooting People outdoors I will always have a Speedlight on My Camera  a 800 or 900 from Nikon for flash fill. you can go to iso400/600 without an Issue just remember exposure is the noise machine and the cause of 90% of noise problems, Folks trying to fix there mistakes later. will always come and bite ya. Well...Most of the time. highest shutterspeed is the Most important. flash makes that work Much better. I guarantee ,you learn DOF and you will never be OOF or soft again. I shot fashion for The Eileen Ford agency In NY in the late 60's. this is Penny stock. Honest , true Lifestyle is what sells and you need to produce Images that a buyer can use to help sell a product or service. Keep it clean and Keep it simple and you will make Money..."IF" thats why your here. Stock is very specific and a art unto itself if done correctly and commercially.

 

Tight perfect focus is the #1 issue here and has been since Day 1. And will probably always be. It is at my Classes and our workshops. But as soon as you do the work and learn and I dont mean f8 has more than F4. But distance to subject and focal length used. then your free to create.

 

Fun stuff.
