Newborn re-shoot, yay! Pic heavy, CC please!
I got to do a re-shoot of my friend's baby from last week. He was 17 days old yesterday, so he is SO much more alert and we got very few sleepy shots. And towards the end he was really cranky, so we whipped off a few family shots in the space I didn't intend (as my backdrop was not really big enough); but overall, I'm so much happier with the results. I had to do very little editing on any of these. Some cloning of wrinkles in the sheet (which I had ironed, but still...). The only thing I'm not 100% happy with is the grey in the sheet in the upper portions of the images, but I'm finding that sometimes if I modify it too much, it looks unnatural with the lighting. So suggestions/input on that would be great!
I really only had the white sheet to work with, and one basket. The blanket is theirs, and a favourite of theirs.
Anyway, there's tons but here are some of the ones I like. Sorry so many, I'm having trouble picking what to share!!
I'm not going to post settings unless asked, because they're almost all 1000 ISO, focal length between 100 - 135mm, and aperture as wide open as possible, between 5.0 and 5.6 mostly.
1. Their family in a VERY tight space, and the dad's head was swapped out from another photo. Let me know if you can tell!
5. One of my faves:
6. Not sure this worked. Baby was cranky and we were doing these fast, not too much concern about set up.
7. Dad is a big "tool guy" and brought power tools! Sheet got really wrinkly at this point, because babe was cranky, the power tools were heavy, and we just worked fast and plunked things down.
8. I like this because the tool is the same size as the baby... a good comparison shot for as he gets older!
9. A different take on the feet thing. Does it work?
