Tiffany [Day 2014]


Black and white photo of newborn

Photo-a-Day: Year 6, Day 188 – Total Days: 2,014

Last year, I had the honor of shooting Lauren and Joe’s wedding. And now, I’ve got the honor of photographing their new daughter, Tiffany! She’s just under three weeks old and the shoot was very interesting. I’ve got very little experience photographing newborns, so it’s nice to have a friend’s to practice on :-D

She was mostly cooperative, except for a diva moment in the middle where she really needed some food. Oh, and there was the unplanned bathroom break, too. But after all that, there were some nice tender moments that really make up for any lack of cooperation. ;-)

I also have to add that my new Canon 6D really got the chance to prove itself during this shoot. I was trying to work with natural light, but their home didn’t have a lot of light coming in, so I was really cranking the ISO at times. This shot, for example, was at ISO 5,000! With my 50D, I avoided even going up to 1,600 as much as possible. But the 6D is clearly a low-light champ. I’ve even got a bunch I kicked up to 8,000 that have turned out nicely.

I’ll be working on them more tomorrow to deliver the final set, but this is what I’ve got for today’s photo of the day. Hope you like it!

    • Thank you! I’ve definitely discovered why so many newborn photos are of them sleeping ;-)
