When I took Kim's photography class, she taught us a a little about catchlight - that really cool, colorful, deep eye shot. And that, by the way, is MY non-technical definition. ;)
Since then, I've really wanted to try it. I quickly learned, however, that a 4-year-old is not really the best model. I gotta assume that a 20-month-old isn't much better... and my husband, who has the BEST eyes and would be perfect for this, says he "doesn't want weird pics of his eyes all over the internet."
So. Back to catchlight.
This one is overexposed, but I do like his eyes. I just wish they looked the same shade of blue.
Both of his eyes in this one are the same colors, so that's good... I just don't feel that his eyes have that same "pop." And what is with the expression?!
I love how serious he looks in this one. Is this it? Did I do it? I'm not even sure.
Back to practicing. I need a model who will actually stay still when asked. Keeping your tongue in your mouth is a bonus.
