How To Take WOW Baby Pictures
A Gem That Really Helped Me Take Better Picures Of My Babies
Your baby is probably the world's cutest infant... I know mine is. Everyone one of them. ;-D
But capturing a baby on a photo can be hard. Or at least capturing a really good baby photo. All of a sudden, the little cutie appears to have seven chins, no eyes, a crooked nose, and just never smiles....
So what are your alternatives?
Well, you could go to a professional photographer and spend hundreds of dollars and hopefully get really great pictures - from one occasion.
Or you could endure.
Or you could learn how to take really great pictures yourself.
I've done the third alternative. Since I run Easy Baby Life I get all sorts of weird offers to try baby products. I was also recently contacted by a photographer, who had written a whole book about taking baby photos. Well, with my own experience of the seven chins, no eyes etc, I got curious.
So I got the book and started to read. And I soon realized that I had stumbled upon a gem. I soooo wish I had read this book before the birth of our first child. I found it when our third child was already one year old. However, it is still very useful!
So why is it so good then?
Well, it includes hands on, practical tips to really improve the baby pictures. And the tips are adjusted to the baby's age and abilities. For example, you'll learn how to capture a magical photo of your baby on the very first day outside the womb. The tips include light, position, position of the adult, background and more for that particular moment.
Then the book goes on with tips on baby poses for the 0-3 months old baby, 3-6 months, 6-12 months and 12-18 months. (The latter poses work well for older children too.) The book is filled with sample photos, which is very helpful.
You'll find great inspiration on fun themes, like baby playing grown-up, eating, and playing with a parent, to mention some.
There are also a lot of tips on how to prepare for the photo shoot, how to make the session successful and what to do afterwards, like cropping and saving the photos.
Simply put, this is a fantastic resource!
The drawbacks...? Well, some people might find it too detailed. If you simply want a checklist, you might not be interested in 85 pages of tips and inspiration. I also find the book slightly disorganized. But, I can easily endure those drawbacks considering the wealth of knowledge shared by the photographer in this book.
So go get your copy of "Oh Baby! Turning Memories into Masterpieces!" I don't think you will ever regret it. (And if you do, you'll get your money back.)
