The first birthday of the little baby is a very special day. It is a monumental moment, not only in the kid’s life but in the parents life as well. Shooting this big event and memorizing these moments for a beautiful photo album can be very meaningful. Here are some ideas for baby's 1st birthday photography.
Most parents will choose to shoot indoors, so please make sure your ISO setting is at least 400-800. Try not to be higher, otherwise the image may become too rough. When the child moves quickly and accidentally, be sure to use a shutter speed of at least 1/125 second to keep the image clear. The flash can be used to illuminate the child's face, but be careful of overuse. Some flash images look rough, unnatural or overexposed.
Theme and Decoration
Before shooting, you need to confirm the theme the parents want, such as cute, funny, humorous, warm, or beautiful. According to the shooting theme, use some props and decorations such as banners, backdrops, tissue paper puffs, balloons and chairs. Photography backdrop is a good choice. It not only creates adorable shooting background, but also can be used as a beautiful decoration.
