So my friend recently had a little baby girl and I was asked to be a Godfather, which is a first for me. I offered to do a baby shoot for them which is yet another first but it went much smoother than I was anticipating.
Yes there were delays to change the diaper, wipe the drool and of course eat, burp and wait for the baby to stop crying but all in all I think I managed well enough but certainly do have a lot more respect for baby photographers now.
The setup was a white backdrop using the lastolite hilite 6×9 which is always a delight to use and for the dark background shots I added the lastolite super black cover which drapes over the hilite. I used the elinchrom quadra as my light source as well as an elinchrom 27″ deep octa softbox which gave me incredible soft lighting. I shot mostly at F11 to ensure everything would be in focus and a shutter speed of 1/125.
This is my first shoot as eventphotography.net which is my commercial photography side in which I hope to grow in the future.
Here are just a few sample pictures from the shoot, let me know what you think.
