Ok I going to have my first go at doing some newborn photo of my second child when it arrives, as it has been wet all day I took a couple of photo's. As I have taken a photo using no flash and one using the flash at it's lower setting with a tissue over it to try and soften it more (if I can not use the I would be really happy as I do not like bright for bubs eyes). As I have a D3100 with a 50mm and 200mm (kit as I still learning), I looking at making some of my own reflectors to help with the natural . As i think the photo's on our day bed give a better natural look but just getting a second a opinion on it. As I do not own any lightening equipment or soft boxes (would love to get some as I get more experience with my camera.) But an other hints would be great on what I can do to help with the shoot. None of the photo's have been edited they are straight out of the camera
1) No Flash (Inside)
2) Flash Used (Inside)
3) Flash used (on Day Bed)
4) Flash no used ( On day Bed)
As I have also made some backdrops to use and got a couple of big fluffy pillows and kids bean bags to help out with the shoot.
Thanks every much I haven't taking many photos lately as I have been so busy with work but really looking forward to taking some photo's again, when the rain and have a clear day.
