Proud parents can enter their children and babies into baby photo contests, in order to win the big prize. The prizes vary, but it is important to make the best good impression that you can with your baby photos. Here are the 5 hottest tips to increase you chance of winning the grand prize and becoming first!
Tip Number 1: Read The Rules. It is suprising how many parents don’t read the rules. If you slip up it could eliminate you from the contest straight away. Spend five minutes reading every rule and making sure you under stand it
Tip Number 2: Don’t use make up on a baby. Judges generally can tell if make up has been used and in our experience they don’t like it. So don’t go and put any make up on your baby for its portfolio photo!
Tip Number 3: Pay attention to the lighting. You could even get some decent books of amazon on how to take good photos. Lighting is key! Make sure it is bright, but not over exposed.
Tip Number 4: Make sure your baby is in focus Similar to tip #3, but so many parents submit out of focus photos just because it is a funny or unique photo. None of that matters if it is out of focus!
Tip Number 5: Submit high quality photos. Don’t just save the small resolution photos from a facebook album – make sure they are full size. If you are entering online they may have a limit on how big image you can submit. Try and make it as close to it (but not over) as possible. This means the photo is going to look as big as possible for the judges. Never just go and enlarge an image though! It loses quality if you make a small image bigger!
