    Default Maternity CC Needed

    A short introduction.

    I've been into photography for about 3yrs, but only seriously in the last 6 months or so. Im enrolled in photography program at a local community college, however I learn more online from forums like these than my actual classes.

    My focus is maternity and newborn photography. Ive done several "proper" newborn and maternity shoots after having done maternity & newborn for about a year. Now Im really starting to take it seriously.

    I own a Canon Rebel. I mostly use my 50mm lens, I shoot in manual and use natural light. I currently shoot on-location.Looking to upgrade to a new lens, any recommendations?

    In addition to being a budding photographer Im a doula (labor support), breastfeeding counselor, herbalist in training, childbirth educator, etc.

    As I am expecting my 3rd child March/April and I wont be attending births as a doula I figured this would be a perfect time for me to further expand my skills as a photographer.

    I haven't been active on here in a while. Bare with me as you can see I'm working on improving my watermark/signature.

    Shot in manual with natural light.
    1.8f, ISO 200, SS 125sec

    Might want to take a look here: Critique Forum Rules and adjust your post before the mods get to it.

    Four images allowed in SYS. One image in Crtiique. You also need to provide EXIF info and what you would like critique on (i.e. lighting, composition, posing, any combo of any aspects....).
