Hello fellow photogs! I wasn't quite sure where to post this, and seeing that a lot of the community looks in here I thought I'd start here.
My wife is expecting our second child mid-October. At our son's birth we didn't get all that many photos during the whole process at the hospital, and my wife is pretty bummed about that and she's not letting me off the hook for this one.
She doesn't feel comfortable having another photographer in there with us so I get to do all the shooting.....and I have never done something like this before. So I come seeking the help of those that have done a labor/delivery shoot before, whether it be for a client or your own family.
Any suggestions on how to go about taking photos of the event would be helpful. I would prefer to not use a flash at all and plan on shooting with my 50mm 1.4 and boost the ISO to avoid that. Hopefully overall lighting cooperates a little bit as well.
Thanks to any and all that respond! I love seeking the advice of those that have done this before and find it extremely useful.
