Hope this finds you all well and having a great day. Today I’m changing things up a little bit, the blog today is more of an educational/informative blog for it is about creating images safely. Since having a few comments and concerns being made regarding an image that is in my “Bellies and Babies” portfolio gallery, of a newborn hanging in a stork pouch, I thought I’d would blog on my process in creating such a photo. The stork pouch is something that I made to be able to use for newborn sessions, but I must admit I need to make another one that is a little bit bigger, for if the infant is much more than 7 lbs. it’s not a very good fit. That's another project to add to my to-do list. ;~D Since I ALWAYS keep the babies safety in mind, I photographed the pouch hanging from the tree branch, stuffed with a blanket to give it some fullness. I can then have the infant in the pouch laying down on the beanbag that I use with my newborn photography and take the photo from above. I then take the two photos into Photoshop and create the composite where I select the baby with a little bit of the stork pouch so that I can blend it into/with the photo of the hanging stork pouch to the point it looks believable. The infant’s photo below that I’m using as an example for this process is of the newborn in my last blog post. I enjoy the creative process and I keep learning more and more about photography along with the software that is available in this profession that I’ve ventured into. Hope you enjoyed the post and in knowing that I don’t go around hanging babies from tree branches. ;~D
Thank you for viewing and visiting my blog. Have a great day!
