HELP!!!

I took these snapshots of this little boy but I'm in a bit of a dilemma about his nostrils. Iv'e looked through all the pictures with his little sister who is fine in every shot except for the little boy.. Should his nostrils look like this, or is it the way iv'e took the shot? Attaching 3 pictures!

#1.

#2. Edited -

#3. Another snapshot -

Looks like the lighting to me. Key light is too low.

Re: HELP!!!

Also I think the camera angle is a bit low and is looking up into his nostrils. there is nothing abnormal with his nose. The smile looks a bit forced.

Re: HELP!!!

Well I think you are worrying over nothing really but once you have spotted something you see it every time you view the picture! The smile maybe is a little false but you have told him to smile, so he looks a little nervy but you get that, the nose looks ok to me it has a good shape perhaps if its really bugging you I would slightly lighten the two dark air vents, but that really is stretching it a bit! he reminds me a bit like my grandson he always wears a false smile when he knows my camera is out, and once again the quality of your pictures are outstanding!

Re: HELP!!!

Many thanks Des, i'm flattered by your kindness and i never see my pictures as being anything more than a snapshot but i always give it my best shot.
I think when it comes to children you should never force them to smile and just shoot and hope for the best but his mother kept coaxing him to smile for the camera, hence the forced smile.
Really appreciate your reply & thank you also Fionna.

Re: HELP!!!

Any time Fiona! children are very hard to photograph, I know I have 2 of them but very few good pictures of them, now its a bit late to improve that situation, the boy is now 48 and the girl is 46 and I feel very old, but its all good fun!

Re: HELP!!!

might be worth posting the ones you're happier with for compare,. like Graham said - the 3rd image especially you can see how low the key light is,. I don't really know what you are aiming to do of course but generally key light would be higher

Re: HELP!!!

His nose is fine. You will never get a perfect pose with a "sprout" that is being forced to have his photos done... UNLESS you shoot the little critters without them paying attention. You have to get their mind OFF the camera by engaging them in conversation they like. Getting a child in his or her best mood is usually my ONE strong skill. I may be good at nothing else, but I am great with young children and teens.
