Chumba Newborn Baby Photography Lighting

November 18, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

There is a lot of information about natural light verses artificial light, flash verses continuous in newborn photography.  I am happy with all types, depending on the circumstances, but due to the lack of beautiful natural light in the UK I use artificial and prefer continuous rather than flash. 

I have always preferred the results that natural light gave when photographing newborn babies but this light was all too infrequent due to the UK climate.  I started using flash but was not pleased with large bursts of light on a newborn.  Then there are the parents who are trying to relax in the calm studio environment and enjoy the experience of having their beautiful newborn baby photographed.  The enjoyment of watching the photo session with a big flash of light every few minutes is not my, or probably their, idea of fun.

Chumba has therefore invested in various photographic continuous compact fluorescent lamps. These lamps do not create bursts of light but a continuous stream and are cool-running.  This gives me the ability to consistently produce the sort of images that I prefer whilst keeping baby and parents comfortable.
