This month I’ll be holding another newborn mentoring session to go over the basics of newborn photography with aspiring photographers. We will be covering everything! From basic posing and wrapping techniques, to placing the finishing touches on a session.
Because of the upcoming workshop, I wanted to share a little before and after of what we will be covering. The mentoring workshop will include a newborn session from start to finish, where we will be posing a newborn in various positions, depending on what each workshop participant is interested in learning. But one of my favorite parts of the workshop is the before and after! What do we actually do with the images, once the session is over? How do I process them? How do I make them look their best? What presets should I use?
Here’s a little before and after of what you can expect. This is a straight out of camera image, vs. the final delivered image. I’ll be covering importing and backup, my favorite newborn presets, skin blemish editing techniques, tone adjustments and discoloration, blanket smoothing brushes, and final processing.
I can. not. wait. The last mentoring session was so much fun, and if you’re thinking that newborn photography might be one of your interests, I hope to see you there!
