    Hey guys, I haven't really posted much in a while, or ever really. Anywho I picked up a vivitar flash for my olympus e500 and my friend picked up a new baby :kekeke: So she asked if I could snap a few pictures. I really had no idea what to do as far as poses and such, so I just kinda winged it. I think a couple shots turned out ok-ish but I'd love some pointers for future shoots with her.

    Not bad at all for a first time RJ...

    They're a bit underexposed. Were these in the hospital? The best way, imo, to light newborns is to stick them right in front of a big window.....typically with a bit of side lighting....so with the head at about a 45 degree angle.

    Your instincts were good with the posing....the little details are good to catch, as they change so quickly...and the interaction with Mommy too.

    This was actually at their home in their bedroom and I hadn't thought about adding more natural light. I was firing the flash straight up for the most part. They have a pretty big window in their living room that I can use. Thanks for the tips :) I'll be sure to post more after I've had time to play around!

    No problem. With a big window, I wouldn't even use the flash. :)

    Good shots, all underexposed and the white balance seems a little off.
