3 points on the path to cute baby photos TURTORIAL & TIPS
Get in focus
Is the photo you took in focus?
When you take a photo, pinch out to magnify it right away!
“Is the baby’s face blurry?”
“Are subtle things in the background (like letters and patterns) difficult to see?”
The photo is solidly in focus, but it is a little dark with dark tones, so we will adjust it with an app.
After adjusting with an app, the photo suddenly looks polished!
The photo is not in focus, so the whole thing is blurry and it looks amateur.
In this case, this photo cannot be fixed even if we adjust it with an app.

As long as it’s in focus, it’s good to go!
Know the ideal time to take photos
Near a bright window in the morning or afternoon is best
The strongest light that can be easily used for photography is natural light. Try to let in as much light as possible by using a room with big windows and leaving the curtains open from around 11-14:00, when the sunlight is strongest. Taking photos outside is also effective, but make sure to dress your baby for protection from the cold in winter.
Pull in your arms, tap the spot you want to focus on, and take a burst of shots
Even if you bring in a lot of natural light, you will not be able to stay in focus if your hand shakes too much when you take the photos. It would be ideal if you could stabilize your elbow with a desk or chair, but if that is difficult, just keeping your arms close to your body will help prevent shaky hands. Once you’ve decided on the composition of your photo, pull your arms into your body and keep clicking the shutter over and over! At least one of the multiple shots should be in focus. A miniature tripod (Gorila Pod) that can be immediately prepared is also effective.
