10 Baby Photography Tips To Help You Capture Memorable Images @MediaNovak
Few things in life can be as rewarding as photographing babies – after coaxing an expression of cherubic joy – caught with a click. Here are some easy photography tips you can follow to take the perfect portrait of a newborn.
1. Match your camera to your subject.
As a casual digital photographer that wants to capture great pictures of your baby (or a friend’s baby), virtually any of the compact cameras on the market today will work just fine. They work essentially automatically, so you can concentrate on finding good locations for your baby pictures and composing pleasing images. Maybe, the best reason to use a compact camera is that you are not thrusting a large piece of equipment, in the form of a DSLR and lens, at your baby, which may scare him or her.
If you’re a more serious digital photographer with a DSLR, then use a lens with enough focal length, so you can shoot from a bit of a distance, so you won’t upset the baby and make it impossible to photograph him or her today.
