I am great with the kids, I get great smiles - not those cheesy smiles you see in most school photos - I don't work for THAT company - I work for the one that captures the smiles in the child's eyes, and I do! We as a company pride ourselves on that -(wish I could show you some but I can't due to privacy etc... ) so what's the problem ? PRODUCTS do not Smile!! they don't laugh they don't giggle and well posing a product just isn't the same as getting a two year old to look so darn adorable and cute!
I have been tweaking my product shots at the store http://www.etsy.com/shop/fleaosophy and you can see a difference from the older products to the ones I am currently listing.
I have reworked my little studio - gotten a cute little table - and some awesome crates and wooden props and today I painted the walls - the white paper backdrop was just BLAH...
I have been using some actions for photoshop I currently LOVE LOVE LOVE -Freshwonderland2 by Paint the Moon - I purchased the Fresh Wonderland2 there are a few freebies to try out (but I LOVE all the actions they have too!) http://paintthemoon.net/blog/tag/free-actions/ I love Wonderland 2 because I can run the action and see how all the options will look on an image and then run all my photos with that action -
I also have a great model - Bree - is a love who will come over and model for me anytime - she was in some of my early digital art photos as a fairy
