Baby’s First Christmas Photo Tip!

Since posting the photo of my Little Wee G yesterday on Facebook, I got many, many emails from photographers, asking me how I created that shot.  I recreated that scene again today so you can get an idea what was done.

I propped both Little G and Little Wee G separately on the table so they can get more of the bokeh effect from the tree since there’s more lights up top than the bottom.  Always remember, SAFETY FIRST!!!  The Giant was less than a foot away and was there to help assist me during Little Wee G’s session.  I can’t stress this enough, safety, safety, safety!!

So here are the deets!

I edited all three photos in Photoshop and this is what I did…

-adjust the levels to brighten up the photo to the amount desired

-used actions (harriet pop) from peta mazey, the childs play series

-sharpened with kevin kubota’s magic sharp

 

That’s it!  Just three simple steps!! If you want to achieve bigger bokehs, get closer to your subject and always shoot wide (f/1.4)
