Baby Portraits in Studio Using Constant Lights on White Background
In this short video I show a little behind the scenes of a 9 month old baby portrait session. The photos were taken in studio using Westcott Spiderlite TD3s, in softboxes, and against a white background. Constant lights are great for baby photography because they don’t startle and frighten the child. The downside to constant lights is that they aren’t as bright as strobes. This means that you will likely need to use a higher ISO, which can increase noise, or a larger aperture, which can decrease depth of field.
