If you’re planning on shooting a little one outside or inside a soft light is always the best. I find it best to use a 2 x 2 soft-box and the smaller the better. The smaller the modifier on artificial light the more of the little one is being lit evenly and not over powered. I have kept with a one light set-up for children. A small umbrella and even a beauty dish could give a softer more even light. If I use a beauty dish I use the white sock that acts like a soft-box over it and make sure the power is low. If there is more than one person in the photograph then I would use the same modifier on another light and might switch it up to a larger umbrella or soft-box. When photographing babies I also like to keep a low aperture which also helps with the soft effect.
These are a few photographs of Gabriel from last fall. I used a low depth of field on these, and a 2 x2 soft-box.
Ziggy is our friends Bearded Dragon! Eveytime I look or photograph him he always is alert and being a great model. He is pretty amazing to look at and makes a personable pet. Personality is in all creatures and Ziggy deffinantly has one! When he is looking at me I feel like he is studying me and is curious of why I’m there. Sometimes he looks as if he’s interested in the sound of the television. He will close his eyes when you pet him softly with a finger tip on is head. They let him run around everyday and he always likes to go to the cool tile area, or behind the tv ! (which isn’t safe, obviously!).
As much fun as Ziggy is he does take a lot of care. He is fed twice a day with crickets mostly and a few mill worms. He also has access to fresh lettuce or other vegetables daily. They bathe him frequently and make sure his cage is always clean of feces and vegetables that have been out for a while or wasn’t wanted by Ziggy. He has a set time schedule for lights and his bedtime. At night he goes to bed at 8:00 pm and wakes up at 7:00 am ! That is very important to Ziggy to insure he is happy and healthy.
Bearded Dragons can be awesome pets. If anyone ever is thinking about having a bearded dragon as a pet make sure you have to time to care for them as well as any other reptile. This is just a few things I’ve noticed about Ziggy and his family. For all the information you need please check out : http://www.beardeddragon.org/
