Newborn Baby Photos: You Gotta Love Them! By: Munya Chinongoza

Who does not love looking at newborn baby photographs? I know I do, and with that in mind I have taken the time to research, both at the library and the internet to find the best and easiest tips for you to use when you take your newborn baby photos. I am quite positive that using these helpful hints will help to ensure better baby photos for you and for baby's photo albums.

Tip #1

It does not take a genius to notice that nowadays film is now so expensive! So I would recommend you opt for a digital camera. Why? Well, because with digital cameras, you can take as many baby photos as you want and delete the ones you don't want. And it won't cost you a single
penny to enjoy this.

If you really want print versions of your photos, what you can do is save all the ones you like onto your digital camera or computer and therefore only print out the ones you need, this will once again help you save on cash.

Side Note, if you still do not own a digital camera yet and are planning to get one, which you should because you will need it, I recommend you buy a larger memory as well.

When you buy your digital camera, it usually comes with very small built in memory, that you can use up with just a few baby photos. But it will not take you long to realize that fifty pictures can be gone faster than you think and before you know it your camera will be warning you that there is no more memory. So my suggestion is that, you buy a bigger memory card to save you the trouble and pain of missing out on great shots of baby, just because you have finished all your memory.

Tip #2

Try to make sure your camera has fresh batteries readily available at all times. There's nothing as annoying as realizing just when you want to take the baby photo that your camera is not working because there are no batteries in the camera or that the batteries in there no longer have the requires power to run your digital camera.

In order for you to always be ready for those cute baby moments, please keep a camera readily available in the diaper bag to ensure that you catch every photo opportunity that may arise as you are run around with your precious bundle of joy.

Tip #3

Do you know the ultimate trick that will make your newborn baby photos look very professional and always appealing to the the viewers eye? I am sure that you have never thought of this, so I am going to take the liberty to share this with you. After all you want the best looking baby photos you can get at a very low cost to you right?

That trick is, use soft colors, soft light and soft textures, They tend to work best when it comes to taking newborn baby pictures. What happens is that soft colors tend to take away from distracting backgrounds or clothing colors that are usually associated with babies and therefore allow the photograph to be focused on the baby. The one piece of clothing like a tiny jumpsuit, work well for baby photo clothing because they conform to the baby's body and show the adorable, round shapes of the baby too. When u start concentrating on soft colors, don't you overlook the baby's cute little hands and toes. You almost always find your baby's personality in these areas.

Tip #4

You should as much as possible use serpia on your baby photos. Since what we are trying to do is preserve time and memories, you might want to try going for the aged look. If you are going to try this then, sepia is a good option to use.

If you have no digital photography knowledge, you are probably asking yourself, what is serpia? Well sepia is like black and white but with tans or beiges also incorporated into the picture. You might just like the way your baby photos turn out! In fact I am positive that you will like this effect

You digital camera, you has option of turning your baby pictures into black and white or sepia within the camera itself. It's usually just a matter of pressing a button on the camera itself. Please check your camera manual for complete instructions on how to do this on your particular camera.

Tip #5

Always try different angles, to avoid all your newborn baby pictures looking monotonous. For example you can go for a high angle looking down, a position on the opposite side of the crib (turn it around), or even through the crib bars. Try to avoid using the macro setting on a zoom lens, since this setting most often incorporates a wide angle, that may spoil the effect you are trying to get with your photo angle.

There you go a few tips to help you start taking amazing baby pictures. Remember they say practice makes perfect, so try to take as many photos as you can, whenever possible. Especially if you are using a digital camera you may delete any unwanted newborn baby photos at no cost to you at all. Have fun and congratulations on your new baby.
