THE CHALLENGE OF IMPREVISIBILITY by BAPTISM PHOTOGRAPHER
Babies and baptisms. We call subject every and any point of attention of the photographer that can result in a photo. It can be something at the moment, it can be a theme that the photographer chose for a series of photos or a day with several themes but connected with some sort of conducting wire.
Usually, babies and baptisms are closely linked. A baptism photographer, when invited to cover one, knows that he will find a baby. And what could be a better subject for a photographer? Because, today, the best way to photograph, an event like that is to tell a story in photos, the christening photographer does not lose any time and point his lens to the main subject of the day, the baby.
I must say that it is, at least, challenging. Everybody loves that naughty look, those little fingers caressing the mother, that shameless laughter to the father and that is possible, I wrote it here before if the photographer knows how to do it in intervals because a baby is completely unpredictable doing his job to prepare and get dress. I may say that I have been doing well with my technic or, after all, the babies are very benevolent with me, but, I am sure, it works.
