Top tips for taking great baby photos

Here’s some top tips from Obaby*’s guide to taking beautiful baby photos. It starts off with the basics of photography such as lighting but then rounds it out with taking photos of mothers to be and how to take photos of toddlers too.

I found these tips to be the most useful:

  • taking silhouette shots of pregnant mothers is optimal at 7 months,
  • the first two weeks are the best for newborn pictures,
  • iPhone iOS 7 includes Rapid Shoot mode for capturing action shots. If you hold down the + volume button, it activates “burst mode” which takes up to 10 photos a second.

So less pictures with blurry bodies disappearing from the edge of the photo for me. Heh.
