Behind the Scenes {Newborn} San Francisco Photographer

I always think it's interesting to see how other photographers capture the images they do, and Rocket's mama took a few photos of me working during Rocket's photoshoot that I thought would be fun to share. The photo on the left is the "work" photo and the photo on the right is the resulting image.

What you DIYs at home will want to remember is that in image one, I've created a very SIMPLE background...you don't see any knick-knacks, sippy cups, burp cloths, etc. to distract your eye from what I want you to see (the super-cool rocking chair and of course baby Rocket). In image two, you'll notice that I wanted to capture this moment as they were...just Dad & Rocket...not super-posed, but just capturing the essence of Dad supporting and loving his new son. Again, I used the natural environment but made sure the distractions were not part of my shot (you don't see dad's feet or anything else that was peripheral). I may choose to incorporate those elements in other shots (see the full post on Rocket for other examples), but it's important to create a variety...nobody needs to have 50 of the same exact shot!

Let me know if you have questions - I am happy to answer!
