Hi,
I'm new to photography...I got my first SLR a couple of months ago, just in time to start photographing my nine-month-old son. My problem is that his creamy white skin often turns up blotchy and red/yellowish in pictures. I try to avoid using my flash (it's not a bounce), since I prefer the look of natural light. Could this be part of the problem? I've tried different locations, different clothing, etc. but I can't pinpoint the cause. I would greatly appreciate any advice.
Thanks,
Tanya

Doug Vann   You are correct. The fact that you are not using your flash is part of the problem. From the look of the pictures I would assume that they were taken indoors with indoor lighting. When using indoor house lighting you either have to have the correct filter or use a flash. Ideal would be a bounce flash but I would think the regular flash you have would be better than no flash at all.
