Well, here’s what I learnt: a) you need someone else there to get baby’s attention and conjur up the smiles, b) don’t try this when baby is tired and/or hungry, and c) I’m not really that good at using my DLR camera, I’m sure I should be doing fancy stuff with shutter etc but I’m pretty much pointing and shooting!
Also after reviewing the original I think I had F too close to the lights, they don’t have the lovely blurred effect like in the pinterest one.The Christmas dress looks good though, thanks Grandma! xx
So here are some of my feeble attempts! The set up:She’s keen but the lighting wasn’t quite right….Something to distract while I fiddle with curtains etc…. Funny face!Ok, now we’re getting somewhere….Best of a bad lot? Then I moved her further away from the lights to get the out of focus sparkles thing going on, but before I could change the lighting on her…
She’d had enough!
Oh well. Here are some photos from our more successful autumnal photo shoot last month instead: xx R + F
