I Clicked It Up a Notch | August 2012


Though my last blog post was loaded with photos from my newborn nephew's photo shoot, I just had to choose this one for the I Clicked it Up a Notch photo challenge this month. Being that this was my very first shot at newborn photography, I am quite pleased with how the shoot went and how the photos came out. 

I was nervous about first of all, shooting indoors. I've tried to mostly shoot in manual mode since I decided to delve into photography, but indoor photography in manual mode can be a bit tricky for me. In addition, this was the first time I lugged all my gear to someone else's home and shot photos inside. I was crossing my fingers for good light and a cooperative newborn. I felt I had prepared myself adequately enough by reading up on newborn photography. I knew a key element is patience. And sure enough, we did have to exercise some patience as he wasn't certain he wanted to sleep for us. But, after a feeding and some cuddling, he drifted off and we got our photos. I am pleased with how these photos came out and hope for the opportunity to work with more newborns in the future.
