Photographing Babies Part 2

by admin on May 4, 2010

Last week we talked about keeping the background simple.  This week we’ll talk about lighting.  Lighting can make such a difference in the way a picture turns out.  Natural soft glowing light is the best lighting to use.  Why?  Because it adds a softness and a contrast between light and dark.  It’s similar to the type of lighting that Rembrandt used in his paintings.  This lighting is that nice soft lighting that can be found inside a window or outside in some lighted corner, or early evening lighting.  It’s that nice soft lighting the adds a soft glow to the picture.  This lighting can cause some really striking effects on a photograph when captured correctly.  So practice using the lighting without the flash.
