Some people are natural at modeling. This is Josephine. She is two weeks old and came for a visit with her mom and grandma. Some of the background was removed using the new Content Aware function of CS5...unbelievable tool which will save us all a lot of time and hassle.

Hi Roger,
Wow...What a cute picture… morning shows the day…she will surely be a great model one day :-)

Hello Roger

A beautiful name for a lovely baby.
This wonderful picture speaks to my heart mom.
You have chosen the perfect moment, her little arm up, her facial expression so expressive.
Unusual portrait for a newborn.
I also know that the management of light is difficult not to disturb the baby.
Very nice work b & w
Bravo and my big hello to Josephine.

Hello Roger,
Indeed a new Top Model is born (^_^). What a cute scene

Her skin is so soft or the image is slightly blurred? Nevertheless, I think it suits well the intended mood.
Well done !
P. Sorry out of smiles for today

Oh, how beautiful! To look at her pose made me smile. Two weeks and she can take her head up? No wonder it is said "babies are God´s Masterpiece". She is perfect. Great caption. I will look up for more information regarding the function of CS5 you mentioned. Thanks!


Hi Roger ,
How beautifully this new comer posed for your shot as it seems that she knows that you are taking pic of her,lovely and very cute one,an amazing Portrait.

Best Regards

You are absolutely right in your note: She is a born model, Roger!

The B&W version works well for this particular shot, and I like the charm and happiness hidden in this work. The way this budding model is posing for you(r camera), is just great. The sharpness and POV are well done and light is managed superbly.

Perfect timing and well planned portrait, I must say!

Best greetings and have a good start in the week,

elle est superbe cette petite miss! quelle pose!
cela promet quand elle grandira ☺ ☺ ☺

Top modèle au naturel......
Bravo Roger superbe.....

Hi Roger
Fantastic the pose you captured here... wonderful portrait again
Best regards, mb

Bonjour Roger
Très joli et original portrait de bébé.La pose est superbe et la finesse de ses traits et de sa peau sont très bien rendu.
J'ai fait un PPwork avec un halo blanc sur le pourtour de l'image car je trouve le BG distrayant.Qu'en pensez-vous?Catherine

hello Roger,
what a treasure! What a model! I have never seen a baby sleep like this before. Beautifully photographed, showing the tender youth of this child.A good compo too with a good diagonal line.

Bonjour Roger,

Cette jolie petite demoiselle, semble se poser des questions sur son futur avenire, si jeune et déjà star de TL!!!
Sa carrière est toute trouvée, elle sera mannequin!!!
Elle est adorable et toutes mes félicitations pour avoir pu la photographier sans la réveiller!!!
