Challenge 1: Making a baby smile for a photo (difficulty lvl 8/10)

Leave a comment Standard

Looking at this photo taken by GJD Multimedia PH , you will never know that Lowe did not smile like this throughout the photoshoot. In fact, his smile was rarer than a lightning during a sunny day on the shoot. One of the reasons a photographer is called a professional is because they can capture moments like this and make it seem the opposite from what it really was during the session.

I never realized how difficult it could be to have a baby at a shoot. Why? The main reason is, you cannot tell the baby when to smile. Babies cannot fake a smile. They are the most uninhibited people on the planet!

They cry when in pain or sad, shout when angry, smile when happy or contented. Very simple! Yet very complicated because they just don’t smile for no reason, especially when placed in a new environment such as this. Lowe is very much like William in this case, very quiet and observant when placed in a new situation/location.

Thankfully, Miko from GJD Multimedia PH captured these fleeting smiles of Lowe and made it seem like he was smiling throughout the shoot! We brought his favorite stuffed toy Minion and a bubble-making toy which wasn’t very effective. Only when placed on the mat to stand or on his tummy did he smile.

I guess Lowe isn’t one for the cameras. It’s okay Lowe, you’ll find your true calling in the future.
