GO MAN­UAL

“Be­cause we were us­ing sup­ple­men­tal light­ing, I told Heather to put her cam­era into Man­ual mode. The sync speed on my cam­era is 1/160 sec, so that’s how fast our shut­ter was go­ing to be, and we kept the aper­ture at f/4 be­cause I don’t want too much of the im­age fall­ing out of fo­cus. The ISO was at 100.”

SIN­GLE POINT AF

“I USE SIN­GLE AF point fo­cus­ing. Nail­ing the aut­o­fo­cus is eas­ier shoot­ing at f/4 than at f/1.8, which some new­born pho­tog­ra­phers go down to, but us­ing a sin­gle point AF gives you the most con­trol. Al­ways make sure to fo­cus on the eyes.”
