Here's the photo I ended up adding to the gallery for a critique. Here are Allison's comments:
What a great idea! Your light looks good and it's always nice to start with a concept in mind--I'd love to see that ladder photo! Your composition is not static with his head in the upper part of the frame and , of course, his crazy expression is cute too. I like that you consciously switched up your POV from your normal routine.
I'm sure somewhere around my blog, you'll see the photo I took of Matthew last summer, and it's a photo that I still just love, so I figured I'd let my younger son in on the act and get him also lying down, of course instead of having a soccer ball in his hands, he's being his goofy self! I love how it turned out. I added that I would love to get out a ladder and do this shot with all three of my kids in it - with their heads together and feet sticking out like the spokes on a wheel, which is what ATJ is referring to in her comment about the ladder shot.
I'm learning A LOT from reading her comments on ALL the photos in the gallery though, and there are some fabulous ones in there! I hope to be back later with some of the LOADs I've been working on!
