In this short video we show you how we use the Infinity Wrap and two Stretch Wraps to create beautiful effects using out teak bowl, farmhouse wood floor, posing nest and dusk faux fur stuffer.
You can use any combination of Infinity Wrap and Stretch Wraps, try and experiment with similar as well as contrasting colours. The Inifinity wrap makes the wrapping a little easier by stopping arms and legs moving about when wrapping, if you are new to wrapping these will really help you out. We have found the easiest way to use the Infinity Wraps is to have the child in your arms or legs as shown to put it on prior to placing the baby into the prop.
We have used a dark wood floor for this shoot, but why not try a white floor or even a colourful floor co-ordinated with your wraps?
Remember always work safely!
Heres a few of our new Cake Smash Backdrop Sets – Watercolour Pattern 1 (PF) and Water Colour Pattern 5 (PF) along with the White Washed Wood Floor (Vinyl) as well as the super tasty cakes by N Deering Cakes.
We find the best way to set up for a cake smash is to pin the backdrop against a solid wall and add a piece of white skirting at the bottom to tidy things up. We use polyfabric for our backdrops and wipe clean vinyl for the floor. As for lighting, because there is no glare from the Polyfabric you can light as you wish and the vinyl won’t reflect as a floor if shooting from the front. We use slightly off centre 45 degree lighting with a single Softbox and works perfectly!
Here’s our first use of the new Rainbow Ribbon backdrop. So colourful and easy to co-ordinate with outfit, cake and accessories. The perfect set up is a polyfabric backdrop and a white vinyl floor as seen in this set up.
We are going to be showing you our favourite set ups in a series of new posts, if you have your own favourite please share with us as we would love to see how you are using our products.
This set up is used pretty much every session in our studio and is so easy to have set up before client arrives and takes only a few minutes to finish once you have the baby in your arms.
The floor is our Farmhouse Wood Backdrop in Polyfabric, no glare and if you feather your lights you will get a lovely even light across the set up and baby. Next is the Teak Posing Bowl, wonderful to use and perfect size for most newborn babies. We are using the Plum Faux Fur Stuffer in this set up and co-ordinating with a Passion Infinity Wrap to help with the extra wrapping (Infinity Wraps hold arms and legs together like a sock). The main wraps are the Purple Stretch Wrap and Grape Cheesecloth. Obviously you can use whatever wraps you like to contrast or co-ordinate in similar colours, either way the use of two wraps adds loads of texture and lovely depth.
