    Capturing the innocence of newborns is one of the most memorable and important pictures for any family. They stay little for such a short period time. Over exposure is definitely one of the hardest challenges.

    I would have to say skin can sometimes be my biggest issue. I also would love something that simplifies emphasis on the tiny features like eyelashes and eye brows…something that is not too heavy, but will give them a little weight when they are really fine.

    How does one achieve the SOFT, EVEN shadows when shooting in natural light? Like that family, for example: the infant in the middle is not lost in dad’s shadow dispite being sheilded from the light source. Nor is baby in mom’s arms blown out even though he’s fully in the light source. HOW??!?!

    I love this article! but I have a question. I am using a digital camera. Is it possible to have softness look in my picture? Or the photoshop does it? I am sorry I am a beginner.
