Newborn safety

This isn’t from the workshop today but I think I need to bring this up as it will be one of the things I will be teaching once I release the details for the workshops and that’s newborn safety.

Lately there has been some very scary images of babies being put at risk all for the sake of an image. Such as the hanging pose, placing babies in glass jars as well as the head up on hands pose.

Remember that these sort of images should be captured in a sequence of shots and are actually composite images retouched in Photoshop. The baby should be supported at all times and definitely don’t go placing a baby in any sort of jar!

If you are starting out in this field and have never worked with babies then PLEASE do not try these poses unless you have someone with you that knows what they are doing.

I do not offer these sort of images as I don’t feel like it’s my style or that I’m comfortable with it but I do have this image that will give you an idea of what I’m talking about.

Here are also some links regarding newborn safety that should give you a further idea.
