  1. wow. Thanks for adding specs. YOur close ups are amazing. I will have to do some work on this. Love them! I did some kids photos today. Any tips for how to improve. My goal for them is same as your flower pics – really sharp crisp faces with faded backgrounds but couldnt get as sharp as I wanted. The specs of each pic are listed on my page.
    Nice work.

    1. 🙂 Thank you. I added the specs for you. In the past I assumed the specs were boring details but I realized others might find them helpful- not to mention it’s good for me to understand what and why I do things. The photos of the kids looked good– I especially liked the blue sky background – it made for a cheerful look.
