UnBaby Portraits – A Tutorial

My friend surprised us with a midday baby visit today!  So while playing with Baby Megatron (this is our nickname for her), I sat there thinking what sort of awkward random baby photo can I use her for?  You see, I don’t have a baby of my own…so I don’t get to experiment much.  One of Baby Megatron’s outstanding feature is her hair.  It just doesn’t lay flat.  So as a joke, I mentioned  it would be hilarious to take a photo of her being electrocuted.  (Real electrocution…not so hilarious.)  So, her dad quickly got into position (he’s holding her steady in the back – she is after all only a little over 3 months old.)  My husband held the fork nearby and only gave it to her right when I was ready to click the camera.  And of course…the cord IS NOT plugged in.  Some simple off camera backlight (from an off camera flash) to give it that “electrifying” factor…and beautiful window light and VOILA!  A quick UnBaby portrait.

Mariae Bui - Yeah, she was in a really good mood and didn’t mind this at all. She has some great outtakes too!
