    Baby Photography Ideas: change the background

    Baby Photography Ideas: change the background

    The black backdrop in these images has really helped to make Alice stand out, drawing more focus to her key features.

    You need to be aware that the black sheet won’t be reflecting any light onto the baby’s face and shutter speeds may drop – bring the gold reflector closer to the child to compensate. The dark sheet will help separate them from the background.

    When you convert your image to mono the baby can end up looking very pale, and when shot on a plain white backdrop, often disappears into it.

    Baby Photography Ideas: include the parents

    Don’t forget to include the parents. To add a sense of scale here, Alice’s dad placed his finger into her hand for her to grab. It’s another classic shot to get in the bag.
