Which one would you choose to enlarge to 47 x 47″?

I can’t believe he is so grown up! (Scroll down for information on how I took these images!)

Do you want to know how I thought it through?

1.  I found an area with tons of diffused (really even) light

2.  I choose to use my 50 mm lens (a 50 mm is considered a prime lens because it doesn’t zoom in and out…it generally yields really sharp and beautiful images) because clarity was my goal.

3.  I set my aperture to 1.8 and let the camera set the shutter speed.

4. Because I was using such a big aperture and I was going to have so much blur (see this post), I made sure I was ONLY AND ALWAYS focusing on his eyes

5.  I dressed him is something really simple and comfortable.  In fact, I really wanted him to be in this cute little hat, but he didn’t want to so I didn’t fight it.  What I really wanted was a great smile.

6.  I added in a little tush-ey dance for a great laugh

7.  And I took a lot of pictures!!

I mentioned that clarity was one of my goals for these images….that’s because we are going to choose one to enlarge to 47 x 47″ and hang on our family room wall.  Which one would you choose?  We can’t decide!!!

janny - I would choose the middle one. I love the animated look on his face there. They are all great!

Merrilee - That is almost an impossible question to answer because all three of these are adorable! His expressions in the top two are priceless :) I would probably have to go with the middle one because the background has a bit more contrast against his face and the horizontal line adds some visual interest which might look nice in an enlarged image.

Rebecca - I vote for #3. :)
