baby feet

Black and white baby photography

I wish I’d tried to get some arty shots of N much earlier on.  His hands & feet have always been like monster baby versions compared to those of his little friends, so it would have been nice to have them in context when he was first born.

However, I’ve since managed to get arty with the camera. No fancy backgrounds, but blimey, photo management and changing pictures to black & white does make shots look impressive.  It’s great to experiment with baby photography, especially as young babies and children are happy to have their photos taken compared with older children.

I’m really pleased with my photos.  I do love black & white photos as they make everything look classy, and totally change the whole atmosphere of the photo.  Here’s a couple of my attempts.

Did you take lots of photos of your newborns, or did you discover an interest in photography since having children?
