Alpha, the daughter of my best friends Nat and Alice.

When they came to visit earlier this year I took the opportunity to try some baby portraits - and to have some fun with it! I was able to get Alpha's attention - and smile - by making silly noises (actually a Harley Davidson idling - dgdgdgdgdgdg ...) for long enough to snap this one.

NB: don't try this for real!!

See the workshop for the pre-processed original.

Hi Rew. Good creative one for TL. Excellent portrait, suitable for a parent's guide book! The happy face is what does it for me. Well done. Murray.

Awwww... did he really hang in there ? Cute and funny. Makes me laugh.


Hi Rew,
Anne Geddes eat your heart out!!!
Absolutely brilliant Rew, as good PP job as I've seen. I suspected you would'nt just hang the baby up, but you fooled me as to how you did it.
Can't say much more.

very cute and well done :)

greetings, terry

hahaha... I hope the baby still save rew....
great idea and very good lighting, I can see on hanger and in baby skin, great mood and funny artwork from you rew.

I feel truly humble when I see work like this. It is not just the subject...but the PP skills that have gone into this. How long did it take to come up with the final image Rew?
Lovely expression and you obviously engaged Alpha...totally.

Hi Rew
Very creative and funny. Well done.



Excellent use of post-processing to get yourself the effect you quite wanted. I like the contrast between the darkness, the baby and the aluminum coat rack.

Oh shame , she is hanging there
but she is at least smiling, she looks really cute
It is a really good workshop that you did and it is really eye catching, nicly done
very good compostion and light on the baby

GREAT PHOTO!!!!!!!!! That is soo funny. Lucky you put in the WS the original photo or I might have tried it myself :D

Very original work!


Nice shot, rew... very sharp.. is the baby really looking at you???;) anyway, at first glance I said to myself... Good griff!!! but when I saw the workshop, I was relaxed and the last word is Whew!!! what a PP you made... TFS my friend and happy weekend.

OMG!!! Was my first thought opening this What amazing work here!!! My heart jumped into my throat until I opened the ws. This is absolutely amazing here! LOVE IT!!! TFS

Totally funny! I hope everyone reads the note and checks the WS. I can just see some nitwits 'trying this at home' .....
She looks like she is enjoying the session! Great idea! I have to admit, sometimes I felt like doing just that at times......

This looks like about 2 seconds before an ear piercing squeal of delight from bubs, she is obviously having more fun than anyone else at that point. Well done.

Bravo Rew!
Perfect artwork and idea

hello Rew !

What an original, and hilarious post ! Brilliant idea! thanks for the WS! You saved a few injuries (^_^), as you might have given few ideas to fellows members to capture their loved ones!

Model is sooooo cute !

Big Big Big Bravo!

Hi Rew. Wow, that is one funny little face my friend !!! Well done...you almost got me ;-) Cheers. Dany :-)

HAHAHA! Wonderful REW!! What a funny shot! This is SO incredible and no I would not try this at home! Really cute the way the legs are spinning for ground! I love it!

Hilarious, cute, dynamic, cool - gives me a big smile. Tahnk you, Rew! - Cheers, Cordelia :) :)

Hi Rew,
LOL...excellent idea and superb excecuted! No need for further comment it is a stunning picture. Regarding the WS: was it really necessary the mother held the baby? You only need 1/30 sec before the hook may fail :-) (just kidding about the hook)

:) Later....

whewwwww...... magnifico, you really impressed me with this funny shot Rew. The composition, creativity and the good quality of image.

Excellent job Rew,

Are you influenced by Michael Jackson? (only kidding)
Adorable and technically perfect. Great work, glad to see the original to see how you had done this.


OMG! ... If i were the mother you will be dead for sure heheheh.... Really it is nice PP work.


Incredible shot Rew
great work and idea
it seems real.......

ciao Sergio

impressive idea Rew! cute and funny. nicely done on the PP.


Hi Rew

hehe great job! nice effects! very funny indeed!
you're a very brilliant photographer rew


:D Oh my goddess that's the cutest thing I have ever seen, seriously! I just love how incredibly convincing it looks, Alpha really looks like she is hanging off the coat hanger! The black rich background is great because it does not look like a backdrop, thus not distracting for the main subjects at all. The lighting on Alpha is perfect, she is illuminated so well, and I am glad she was in white with the white diaper (cute! :P) because that allows her to really contrast with the background as well as the brushed silver coat hanger. Excellent angle and great point of view right at eye-level with Alpha so that we can see some of the back of the shirt that's hung over the pole of the coat hanger, and incredible eye contact with this chubby little baby! The composition is just perfect, with her near the top left, and the pole at the side, and all the curving poles coming from it seem to balance well with her. Her facial expression, as well as the ears and the rolls of fat, are priceless. Excellent focus and the detail and sharpness are great. I really love how this time you had the simple frame with the subtle gradient of grays in the thin gray line (to pick up on the silver coat hanger) and then black to blend in with the background again. I seriously am trying very hard to think of something that could be improved in this....but I can't!!! Haha, TFS this one Rew!

You almost made believe that Alpha was really hanging, whewww... good thing you did post a workshop :D.

Still, your impeccable lighting is perfect to my eyes, with complement to your cooperative and cute baby model. Because I know its not easy to shoot a baby for they sometimes moody and difficult to dictate on what you want them to do.

Thanks for sharing your idea, I may do experimental shot to my son when I come home to my country this week.

Cheers mate.

Hi Rew, very realistic piece of work. Good PP to take Alice out of the image. Well composed and lovely colour and light. TFS,

Apart of funny idea, the photography itself is very good with excellent light, very clear and sharp. I like the composition. And soooo sweet the baby's face expression! Wow! Wonderful shot! :-)))

WOW the baby is really cute and very funny picture I really like seeing happy faces. Great composition and very sharp image.

Tremendous use of P.P work to excellent effect. This really made me laugh, she looks like a bundle of laughs, put the great pp work aside, you have done very well to capture the mischief in her face, which in the end of the day is what every good portrait photographer wants to do, (capture the personality).
Great work. TFS

This photo is SO great.
You really workshopped it well (although I was really hoping there was someone holding the baby and kind of assumed).
The black background works really well and the quote on the shirt is the perfect touch.
Well done all around!

I feel better after looking at the WS. Of all your portraits this one is my favorite. I have got to have one of those outfits for my grand daughter. Quality, Quality. Nothing else to say.


Absolutely stunning! :) Great idea and execution! :) Charming and brave model :)

Excellent - I LOVE IT.
Well done!

Hi Rew

This is an absolutely brilliant shot. In my opinion, an award winner! I would suggest that when you get the opportunity, enter it into a competition. Every element here is perfect, and Alpha is so darn cute! Congrats on the PP work, and huge congrats on the overall image. Impressive! :-)

My friend,

Alpha is an angel and you, an artist!

Hi Rew. Good shot, lots of fun and quality P.P. work. Thanks for sharing.

Wow what a great idea!! I really like this one very original! The colors are great!!

So cute ,
I must admit that I cant resist visiting this pic every time I login to treklens.

Hi Rew

Deserved points, deserved visits and deserved the picture, she should have an AWARD for her.
Beautiful visual, you now surprised me, it was not of waiting for his fine work, that something would come special.
Big congratulations!!


Great creative technique and PP work to create a superb picture.
Thanks for sharing and for giving me some inspiration for pictures of my own

very original a very tender baby I like
excellent work

It's high composition...
very funny...
I liked it..

Beautiful great idea and i know how hard is to catch attention of a child..
Really great shot,
Maybe one thing is that that PP work could have been little bit better where the hand is..Anyways excellent!!

Hi Rew,
Very good idea for this shot.
I have done good at photoshop.
You are right. Dont try this for real!
Very interesting photo anyway.


Spectacular - this should be a poster available worldwide, it will sell!!!
Great idea, great t-shirt logo for the little one, and a great composition within the frame - seriously it could be iconic, like the swimming baby chasing the hooked dollar bill on the Nirvana album sleeve (IMHO of course!)

just exellent!!! and "Smeshno" funny in Russian
great work as the others pics in your gallery
see you soon

Hi Rew,
Wonderful shot indeed , Extraordinary PP work, it looks so real.

Ho. Quel beau cliché et tellement inhabituel. Il a pas l'air plus inquiété que ca le ptit bonhomme. Bravo

It's funny, it's stunning, but made me scared.
My mixed 'feeling' for this wonderful idea and great PP presentation.

This is very much admired by TL friends. No wonder why Bill (trekks) suggested me to look into this shot. I had actually asked Bill's suggestion for an idea of my newborn baby shot... But rew, this idea definitely won't work for my newborn(Dec 05, 8.10am)... I don't dare to try... :X...:D.


ohh my god
what happened:))
why this lovely flower is there:)

smiling of baby's face is very sweety

hi rew

i'm glad they post this one in the featured desitnation. absolutely well composed! the PP looks faultless as well. the notes & workshop was definitely useful. i guess the rest of the positive thing about it had been mentioned already.


BTW, happy new year!

This is such a great shot Rew - featured today on the TL homepage!! Great to see in the workshop how you did this. Alpha looks perfectly content to be strung up on the coat rack ... and my, how she's grown since then! Again - great imagination and creativity.

Wow Rew, incredible shot moreover an excellent editing at that , such a good idea ,seeing the ws makes me realise how it was done and for Alpha's own safety the only way to go i think , hi hi . No wonder this has made it to the top in all categories , love it!
Congratulations on this one , a keeper for sure ! Caught this one in the 'featured destinations ' main page ,

Great idea, great implementation.
Excellent picture!
