baby photos as promised

Well that little baby wasn't overly cooperative yesterday, he was too interested in his Mommy and didn't really like being naked all that much. I did manage to get a few keepers and here they are...










Mmmmm.... that new baby smell. He is as sweet as can be and there are more photos of him here. I haven't finished the special photoshop project that I'm doing with the pictures yet - a gift for the baby shower next weekend. I've got to keep that one under my hat, then I'll show it to you!

Wow, Saucy! Have you considered becoming a professional?
I would LOVE to have my 3 mnth old photographed by you, like this!

BTW, what kind of camera were you using?

Saucy said...

*blush* you ladies are so complimentary!

Angela, I will tell you that baby photos require little equipment and lots of patience. Lots of black cloth (cheap) and a natural light source like a window (easy) -the bigger the window the better. I had the advantage of one soft flood light set up (sounds fancy but it isn't, you can get the bulb setup at a photo store and rig it up to point the right direction to "fill" in the spots that need more light by using hardware clamps. Then I took over 180 shots on my Canon Powershot S5(nothing fancy)and spent lots of time editing them. There weren't too many that I could really, really use because this baby was very squirmy!

Angela, trust me, it's all in the cropping and the editing. It really is.

Dear Saucy,
You have the eye dear!
Cropping is good but you have to have the "eye"!
I love your banner too.

Great photos! I love hands/feet shots!! I didn't get this done for K as a newborn & really regret it but managed to get some newborn photos of N when she was 3 weeks old (plus K with N too!)

You do have a great eye and talent. Not everybody can pick up a camera and produce that level of work.
