Rockin' the Camera

Sunday, August 30, 2009

Yesterday, I did a photo shoot with my baby nephew. We have plans to do a "formal" session every three months in his first year. (Obviously, I take snapshots of him way more often than that!) Can you believe he's three months old already?

I was really excited (as were his parents!) to get him in front of my camera lens again. Things didn't go as well as I had hoped--the weather threw serious wrenches in my lighting situations, and made some of my set ups difficult. Also, being cute is hard work, so Hunter had to stop to eat and nap a couple of times. ;) But the little man was a trooper and did well with everything I put him through. In the end, I think we got a nice variety of photos, and many, many cute captures.

I feel like I'm really starting to get into a groove with this photography thing. It hasn't come easily, that's for certain. I can't even count the number of hours I've dedicated to this hobby. And I still have a long way to go. It can be daunting at times, but I'm chugging along.

OK, enough talk. It's time to go crazy over his chunky cheeks and his big blue eyes. Shall we?

These are so fabulous! I have been reading your blog(s) for a long time now, and you have seriously come a long way with your photography.

I'm trying to better my skills too, but I don't have a lot of equipment yet, nor do I have these adorable baby subjects!

Keep it up! And of course, keep sharing!

Awesome photos. Do you have a studio you are using to get the simple black backgrounds and that gorgeous blue the baby is crawling on? Or is that a photoshop technique? Please share!
