British Baby on Flickr.

Lovely photo of my baby Rose on a Union Jack cushion. Really pleased with how this one turned out, intended only as a quick test shot.

Was taken using two Yong Nuo 460ii speedlights either side of the camera. Converted to black and white in Adobe Lightroom then hand coloured the Blue and Red of the flag.

Bounce - Girl and Flash! on Flickr.

Photo captured using a bounce flash from the ceiling to help freeze her motion as she jumped around the living room. Without the bounced flash the shot would have been impossible.

Looking at Mum on Flickr.

Our cute newborn baby Rose likes to be held tight and kept close to her Mum.

Another photo from the hospital, this time I bounced the flash from the large white wall (above left in the photo). If I had used the ceiling baby would have been in her Mum’s shadow.

I also used a wide aperture to focus in on her face making it the focal point for the viewer.

Baby is just 3 Hours old! on Flickr.

My newborn baby Rose King with her very proud mum. She was only 3 hours old at this point.

The photo was taken with a YN 460ii flash bounced from the ceiling in the hospital.

Without the speedlight I would have had to have had the aperture wide open which would have made it hard to get both faces in focus. It would have also lacked colour, contrast and brightness as well as likely being blurry due to the slow shutter speed which would have been required.
