    I would say that for basic fill light a flash with a small diffuser bounced off the ceiling would work well and not be a bother to the baby. It hasnt bothered any of the babies ive photographed anyway.

    However, I also don't shoot wide open because I like more than 2 inches of the subject in focus. I rarely shoot any sort of portrait larger than f5.6 so I need the supplemental lighting.

    Electronic flash...the bright light that "lasts" for 1/1500 of a second! Or less!

    Yes, you did, but a good photographer will use whatever he needs to get the best results he can. That includes using flash. Of course, you're not going to get the flash right in your subject's eyes, we know that. There are many ways to soften/modify/aim the flash to get excellent results, and far better than without flash.

    Any hospital or general office I have been too has had white ceilings. Bouncing should not be a problem. Also most flashes now come with diffuser domes (or can be purchased). Some come with attached bounce cards. Can also use the old stand by and just put a cloth, tissue, white paper over the end of the flash.

    Before $100 bounce cards, $35 diffusion domes were sold. It's amazing what a plain white sheet of paper could do!

    Hey,
    Try your hands on Canon EOS 5D Mark III 22.3 MP Full Frame, it is designed for professional photography grade. Best in Market according to my suggestion.

    No offense but if you are asking that question you should not even be thinking of starting a photography career or studio.

    Try just focusing on learning photography first![/QUOTE]


    Also, and maybe it was mentioned, but newborn photography requires training. Idc how many babies someone has held, posing classes are paramount for this type of portraiture. And insurance. A big insurance plan.
