Kelly Brown | Getting light on your side for newborns


A happy glow from down under
Too many newborn shoots seem to concentrate on a warm studio and forget all about warm lighting– light with direction, glow, colour and life. We see so many photographers use soft, formless lighting and bland backgrounds for babies which almost lose outlines and merge into a magnolia marshmallow smudge. Well, baby skin has to look soft and perfect, doesn’t it? And newborns are not immune to skin care problems? So, light flat? But newborns have wonderful cheeks and chins and eyes, little noses and perfect lips. Rounded, dimensional, confident lighting can work!
