It’s been a long time since I’ve posted much about my photography. My sister in-law asked me to take pictures of her baby boy, Andrew. Of course, such things are always fun for me.
One thing I did differently with these pictures is that I actually processed them in both b&w (well, a toned b&w) and color. I’m not very good with color. But I want to get better. So I practiced with these. I practiced adjusting skin tones and giving the overall image a soft “baby” feel.
But then, I really do LOVE black and white, so I processed them as such too. What do you think?
My neighbor, Kellie, lent me the basket (THANKS KELLIE!) and we just played around with different poses. It was fun. These were all taken in my living room (construction stuff pushed out of the way).
I like this one a lot. I like the height of the blank wall behind him.
The “baby pictures” I’ve taken in the past have been of NEW borns – less than a week old. Andrew is two months old, and starting to chub out like a baby should. That was fun.
And he was such a good sport – he’d wake up for a minute while we re-posed him, and then fall contentedly back to sleep. Good boy.
Next time I’m doing new born pictures in a yellow golden field. Think of this basket in a field with golden sunlight and big trees. AWESOME. Anyone know of any Fabulous Fields in Salt Lake? All the ones I played in as a kid have since been developed. Bummer.
