    I'm thinking of taking a few pictures of my 4 month old daughter and then frame them as a gift for my wife. Problem is I don't have a clue about what poses I should be aiming for. Any advice?

    On the technical side of things I'll be setting the Powershot A75 to portrait mode transferring to the PC, cropping, changing to B&W, pressing the auto correct button before finaly printing (best quality and glossy paper selected) and then framing.

    Great site Sean :thumbsup: .
    I personally like the collage approach


    Although I feel near 100% comfortable with SLR in daylight, I haven't a clue with indoor flash setups beyond a single flash unit. Could do with finding a course to attend me thinks ;)

    DJW - Here are some of my results of my daughter in her first few weeks. I'm really pleased with the results i'm getting from my £200 Panasonic FZ3.

    My only advice would be to experiment and take loads - so what if 9 out of 10 are not perfect....if the 10th is you will be elated. :thumbsup:

    Mike.
