Mark Williams took this picture of his co-worker's baby to test out his new lighting kit. It's a nice shot of a baby. It's not the most interesting, compelling, or beautiful photo I have ever seen but it's nice. It's a photo that I'm sure the mother can appreciate. Mark was wondering if his photo was overexposed. I say check your levels and stay away from the auto settings in editing. If you can, adjust them yourself to the way you like it. I like the choice of focus on the baby's face and the softness around it. For the composition, try keeping the baby's face out of the center. Next time try zooming out and including more of the baby's body and placing the baby's face more towards one side of the side.
