We might not be expert photographers, however if we follow a few simple tips we should be able to produce some very good quality baby photos without too much effort. So that when we look back into our photo albums or we show them off to our neighbors and friends we will be proud of our efforts.
When I first began taking photos over twenty five years ago digital cameras were not an option. Film was quite expensive and so you took your baby photos or any other photo for that matter sparingly.
Today it is my recommendation that you go out and buy a mid priced digital camera. You can click away as much as you like without having to worry about the cost. What you do is transfer them all to your computer and then you can sort them at your leisure.
Just delete the ones you don’t want and keep the ones you do. You can buy a reasonably priced Color Printer and even print your pictures yourself or you can send them to a Commercial Printer over the internet. Or just take your memory card to your local printer.
Just remember when you are choosing your camera try to get a decent sized additional memory card to go with it. Standard memory cards won’t take too many baby photos at a large pixel count.
Buy a couple of extra batteries so you don’t get caught out when your batteries fail. Better still I would actually suggest you buy a camera with a rechargeable battery. Normally they last a day or two at constant use then need to be recharged. Or you can even buy a spare re-chargeable battery to use while you are charging the other one.
I always take my camera with me when I go out. So I am always at the ready to take the unexpected baby photos at a moments notice.
Try to take shots from as many different angles as possible. I am of the opinion that you don’t really know how good a shot is going to look until you have taken it and can see it either printed or on the computer. Remember it’s a digital camera so take lots and lots of shots because you are not going to keep them all only the ones that you like.
