Earlier this week Hanne (my sister) contacted me. She asked me if I could take some pictures of Emil that they could use as a Christma- card. Of course I would do that. So yesterday morning I headed over to their place to have a little photoshoot.
I woke up yesterday and cursed the lack of sun / light. Sigh. It’s nice to have good light working with you while taking portraits. And when you don’t, you have to use a flash light. I’m glad I brought mine. First I thought I wouldn’t need it, but I brought it just in case. It was a good idea.
I have to say, taking pictures of kids are not easy. Esp. not 8 months old babies who wants to crawl as soon as you put them on the floor. I spent most of my time laying on the floor with him. I needed to be on his level to get good shots. It won’t work to take pictures from above. That will just look stupid.
Half way we needed to take a break because Emil was getting a bit tired of “posing” all the time. I can understand that.
I took over 200 pictures all together. I guess half of them was out of focus. I was a bit worried I wouldn’t get any good shots since I saw lots of them was blury. Hanne assured me that there had to be at least one good shot among all the shots I’d been taken. She was right. And you know, photoshop can save a lot of photos!
Here are some of the best shots:
