- 3. As a first time mom, I've taken a lot of baby photos, and have learned a few tips.
- 4. Shoot fast! Babies move, so keep an eye on shutter speed.
- 5. If photos are coming out blurry, it can be because you are shooting slow. Photo on the left above is taken 1/15, and the one on the right 1/250. Set shutter speed to at least 1/100 or set your camera to sports or burst mode.
- 6. Beware clutter. Crop to fill the frame.
- 7. Babies spend a lot of time harnessed in car seats and strollers. Crop out the clutter and fill the frame with baby's face.
- 8. Use Props. I prefer the feel of the photo on the left, but lean towards the one on the right because of the hat!
- 9. Use photo editing software
- 10. Clarity is increased on the photo on the left above. Gives it a gritty look. For baby-smooth skin, the clarity is decreased on the photo above on the right.
- 11. Have fun & jazz it up.
- 12. Crop, select focus on the action, blur, and "paint" out the distracting elements.
