Week 15: Colin James Gamble | Newborn Photographer | Hamilton |

On June 26, 2012, my wife and I were graced with the presence of our new son, Colin James Gamble. A full eight days overdue, Colin came into the world at 8:37PM EDT, with more hair on his head than daddy. This is the newborn photography shoot that I did at the age of 11 days, as well as a stop-motion video of his nursery being put together.

The stop-motion animation, is a transformation from guest room to newborn. Shot at 20-second intervals over four months, the animation is taken on a Nikon D90, using a simple 18-55mm “kit lens”. Natural lighting is used when appropriate and a central ceiling fan light is used during night painting. The music is by Marianas Trench, a Canadian band from Vancouver. The song is entitled “Porcelain” from their Ever After album and is available for purchase via iTunes: itunes.apple.com/ca/album/ever-after-deluxe-version/id479674517
