Tonight was really tough for me to get any good pictures. The lighting is awful in our house unless we get morning sun. I only have my kit lens, which doesn’t go below f/3.5, my camera doesn’t do well with an ISO above 800 (a lot of noise results), and with toddlers anything below a 1/90 shutter speed gives me a lot of blurry photos. This means my photos are underexposed and I have to rely on my LightScoop and editing to get some light, neither of which are the best for good pictures. Cooper didn’t take a nap today either so he was cranky and which set Charlotte off in a bad mood as well. Can’t get greats shots everyday I suppose.
On a side note I find it very difficult to get Charlotte’s skin tone right. She has an olive skin tone with a lot of yellow and red, which is really difficult to adjust without making her hair look blue. Cooper also has a lot of yellow in his skin, and it is really tough when they are in a picture together unless I have natural light. Eventually I’ll figure out how to do manual white balance, and in the mean time I’ll keep selecting the best choice for WB and then do some editing.
