Portrait Classroom: Baby and Child Photography Tutorials Giveaway

The first major item we bought right before my daughter was born was a fancy DSLR camera. We of course wanted to document every aspect of her life and it seems lots of parents make the same purchase. Hiring a professional photographer is very expensive but it seems that the pictures I take never are as nice. I was very excited when Kim from Portrait Classroom contacted me to do a review for her photography app, you guys know I need all the help. Kim is a mom of two girls and a portrait photographer in the San Francisco bay area. Kim released an App for the iPad and iPhone which teaches users how to take beautiful, professional looking photographs of babies and children through a series of 10 step-by-step tutorials. These are some of the photos I took using the tutorials in the app.

I LOVED this app and I highly recommend it. The tutorials guide you through the photo set up as well as the correct lighting that should be used. Kim explains to you what settings you should use on your camera as well as how to edit the image using Photoshop to give them that professional look. I was very happy to see that she also provides a series of images that explains the set up, as well as the original photo taken, and the final image after Photoshop. She provides lots of great resources plus tons of other information.

  3. ...and hopped over to the Portrait Classroom blog. I quickly learned that a larger aperture will give you a beautifully blurry background. Can't wait to try it out!
