I was delighted to have the opportunity to photograph a brand new baby today.
Meet baby Zoey! She’s one week old and is she a sweetie pie! After this shoot, I have to say that taking baby pictures is hard! Something I definitely need to practice doing. Luckily there will be babies galore to photograph in the next couple years (I’m at that age.. everyone is having babies).
For these photographs, I used natural light with my 50mm lens. I think they turned out pretty good. I felt very competent with my camera today. Since I had to work fast, I didn’t have time to think about my settings, so with a couple of test shots for lighting, off we went.
I was also happy to notice that I hardly had to adjust the image as “RAW” for this shoot. They looked pretty good right out of the camera. Just a little color correction and obviously some black and white processing and they were done.
As for posing goes.. well, I’ll have to work on that. It’s hard to “practice” on a baby, since time is so limited. Through this session I learned a lot and I’m sure things will go even smoother next time.
Thanks for looking!
