The contest secrets are as follows:
Join this contest if you don’t mind your baby’s publicity. Technically, this contest is open for Malaysians with babies only. So, if you don’t mind some publicity, you can say goodbye to single and unmarried compers out there! With a decent photo (sharp and clear), you should easily secure a prize.
Use a DSLR with a flash gun / proper lighting. Looking at the top 3 winners in 2016, all three photos were taken indoor. Taking photo indoor has its own advantages like softer lighting that makes the photo naturally attractive. However, if it is too dark, you will need additional lighting or flash. If your baby moves too much, you might need a flash gun to make the photo look sharp.
Wait for a good smile. How you dress your baby is important, but it will never beat a great smile. Most pros will get the basics right like the sharpness, clarity, and brightness. However, the deciding factor will always be the smile. Hoping to get the best smile in 5 minutes is wishful thinking. If you really want to win, invest more time, dress your baby up,take as many photos as you can at different timing, then pick the best.
