A christening is a wonderful event that any budding photographer will want to capture on film. If you are looking for some opportunities to practice your photography skills, taking some photos at a christening is a great way to broaden your horizons.
It’s a great way to practice capturing portraits as you can photograph the baby being christened and its family. Gowns are usually white so be careful with this – you need to make sure you don’t over-expose the image. You can also take some photographs of guests and of the venue itself. If the photographs are good, you may even want to think about getting some professional photography work in future and taking photos at other christenings and events. You can get some of the best photos printed and have them framed as a beautiful and personal gift for the baby’s family – they will really appreciate such a thoughtful present.
