How to photograph a newborn with his parents? Here is one solution! This image was taken on a black cloth on a sofa in Harry’s living room. I used a black cloth on the sofa to mask any distraction and the warm ‘sunlight’ on Harry’s face is the overhead halogen light. I bounced two SB800s onto the white wall opposite the sofa to create a giant soft box. I used a 50mm lens which is perfect for babies.
