Designed to benefit an all-around photographic workflow, the Newborn Photography Workshop Collection and Lightroom Presets from SLR Lounge is a two-disc tutorial covering all aspects of newborn photography, from shooting to post-production. Containing more than 8 hours of video tutorials, as well as 74 Lightroom presets, 2 Photoshop actions, and 45 RAW exercise files, this workshop provides in-depth instruction on how to make successful photographs of newborns.

The first disc begins with an introduction on how to plan and prepare for shooting, and quickly segues into techniques on posing, lighting, and working with props during the shoot. From here, the second DVD picks up after the shoot and provides step-by-step instruction on handling and editing these photographs in Adobe Lightroom 4 or 5.

DVD 1 - The Newborn Photography Workshop

Newborn Posing
The first DVD begins instruction on basic and advanced newborn baby poses, including back, side, and stomach positions along with variations of each. Moving to the advanced poses, tips are given on how to take candid photographs, work with different sleeping poses, as well as how to incorporate wraps and other props into the imagery.
Amazing Results with Simple Lighting
With a focus on creating simple but effective lighting, this portion of the tutorial instructs on how to develop professional-quality lighting using just a reflector and natural window light.
Learn Newborn Safety and Comfort
Respecting the subject is the foremost priority when photographing newborns, and this section offers some useful tips and techniques for ensuring safety and comfort during a shoot.
Accessories and Props
For accentuating the newborn within the scene, as well as offering some comfort and safety, this section teaches you how to find props that are both inexpensive as well as tasteful. Additionally, some instruction is given on basic color theory and how pairing the color of different props can be used to complement the newborn being photographed.
