Ilana, 6 days old baby girl, almost perfect model. Almost perfect, because she did not want to sleep as I would prefer :)). She wanted to see everything what was happening around.

She was photographed in her home using natural window light. I did not want to use strobes as the newborns are barely used to the daylight. I used colour film Kodak Portra 400VC, Pentax MZ-S camera with Pentax SMC 43/1,9 Limited and Pentax SMC 77/1,8 Limited lenses. The negative was scanned and converted to B&W and further enhannced in the editing software.

If you wish to see more photograph of this cute baby, please check my Facebook page, where you can “Like” me, if you are signed up on FB. Look for NEWBORNS gallery.

If you wish to have your newborn baby photographed, I’d be happy to. Please contact me for availability and further details.
