Re: baby photos, any tips?

When they are small, it's easy.  I'd get a blanket or fabric or something (I'd go for simple or no patterns) and lay them out in the brightest part of the day in full shade.  I used my 50 f1.8 on a Canon T2i and snapped away.  The lighting makes their skin look all glowy.  These are a few of my daughter at about 1 month and 7 months old.

Another nice option is sunset light.

Again, just the 50 1.8 for these.

I have no signature.
