Wanted to send a little update again. HI EVERYONE
I had a studio session of a friends 4 month old little boy on Sunday - I bombed it!
Rule 1 - go to bed earlier than 4 am for a 10 am shoot
Rule 2 - remember that 4 month olds tire out a lot faster than older kiddos
Rule 3 - multiple outfit changes can really throw a young one off...slow the mom's down with the entire wardrobe in tow
Rule 4 - BUY A LIGHT METER!!
Here are the results... I only got 10 usable shots - not what I normally like to offer. They seem happy with them, but I haven't gotten a print "order" from anyone in eons - maybe I need to step away from PBing for a while.... ??
Settings - f6.3, 1/160, 200 - AB camera right with softbox as main, AB camera left with umbrella as fill
Sorry so heavy - just wanted to show what I ended with. Parents seem happy, but one can never tell. Feel free to CC if you'd like.
