First Birthday Pics
I made this a page because I love looking at them so much… and didn’t want them to get buried.
I’ve had several people ask how I took these. This is a white muslin drape. I only use muslin, either digital or real. I like the effect, I like the texture. Some people prefer paper for a smooth look, but I don’t. Muslins are awkward and very heavy to take to my shoots, but has a nice look. You can get a good muslin background for around $100.00.
A clear sheet of plexiglass for the baby or toddler to sit on finishes the effect. I used three studio lights, one as a small backlight. I love the faint reflection of the baby in the glass!
