Baby/Infant Photography Tips

Carrie Sandoval shares tips on how to shoot babies. She uses a prime 50 mm lens.

  • The baby can be undressed or dressed in something very simple of a solid color.

  • Have an uncluttered background - it is very important. You may simply hang a sheet to hide the clutter.

  • Try to get eye contact with the infant.

  • Laugh and the baby will laugh with you too.

  • When the baby looses interest, bring in some toys or even cover your camera in a soft toy.

  • If they start crawling, you may use baskets.

  • Lighting from the above.

  • Stay down at the baby's level.

  • Use macro lens for shooting closer.

  • Black and white or sepia looks always classic.

  • Hide the toy behind the camera.
