Late in February, I attended a weekend workshop on newborn photography with Canon Master Kelly Brown of Little Pieces Photography. Her work is just amazing, and I felt so lucky to learn from someone whose work I admire so much.
It was also great to spend a weekend with a group of likeminded people, and learn from them, too. One of the most remarkable things was seeing just how different we all are and how we’re all at different stages of our photography.
At the risk of stating the obvious, newborns are quite a different subject to landscapes. Why the big change in focus? Well, I wouldn’t say that I am completely changing focus but I hope to one day have a family of my own, at which point I imagine my opportunities for sunrise shoots and epic adventures will narrow for a while. While I’m sure I’ll still be trekking to as many beautiful spots as I can, I’d love to start photographing families and babies and help others to capture special moments that they can cherish forever.
I’m also the type of person who can’t stop learning, so this is a new road and, so far, I’m loving it.
I took the above image during the workshop. The posing was done by Kelly and we all took turns getting a shot or two. Processing by yours truly after a lesson with the master.
Stay tuned as I’m hoping that in the coming months there will be a few more babies that I can use as my muses!
