Review Paloma Schell Round NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY backdrop stand (How to NOT fill a beanbag) – at

In this video I’m unboxing, using and reviewing a Paloma Schell Round NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY backdrop stand. I’m also showing you how you should (not) fill up a beanbag 🙂

I’m a full-time photographer in the Netherlands and I’m planning on showing you a but more of my life as a photographer. Are you interested in photography? Are you looking for a free-online Photography course? Do you want to see the inside of a Photo Studio? Then please, watch my videos and subscribe to my channel!

I’m planning on sharing videos in which I show you my typical work-week as a photographer. I will give you tips & tricks concerning photography, photo shoots, backdrops, studio props, camera settings (iso, aperture, shutter speed, white balance), photoshoot outfits, photoshoot make-up etc.

Bedankt voor het kijken! Ik ben een full-time fotograaf in Nederland en ik wil je graag iets meer laten zien over mijn werk als fotograaf. Wil je meer weten over (digitale) fotografie? Wil je weten hoe een fotostudio er van binnen uitziet? Ben je op zoek naar een gratis online cursus fotografie? Kijk dan mijn videos en abonneer je op mijn kanaal. Ik zal videos maken over camera instellingen (iso, sluitertijd, diafragma, wit-balans), studio achtergronden, fotoshoot outfits, fotoshoot make-up enz.

If you are interested in photographing newborn babies yourself I would highly recommend you to first learn about photography in general. Master you camera, photograph in the Manual mode, learn about aperture, iso, shutter speed, white balance, light and composition. Take photos of your friends (adults or very patient older kids) and make sure you don’t have to think about your camera anymore when photographing babies. Learn about editing as well. Please, don’t experiment photographing Newborn babies without training. Attend a workshop by an experienced and professional photographer with an expertise in Newborn Photography. Learn about the anatomy of babies and invest in good quality cameras, lenses and props. Babies are extremely vulnerable and small and their safety and comfort should be your highest priority. Start with simple poses and make sure you know and understand that many ‘pinterest poses’ are composites. Please, don’t try this at home. If you want beautiful photos of your own Newborn Baby, I highly recommend you to hire a professional and experienced photographer who is trained and specialised in Newborn Photography.

  1. Hi how do you want to ask what name the article you placed in the big pillow

  2. Hi Fenna! Very good! I'd like to know if you have already tried to use a "gamela" under the blankets….here in Brazil the newborn photographers use it a lot…

  3. Lorenzo Tds says:

    i think it's too much expensive..

  4. Hoi Fenna,
    Heerlijk om te zien dat ik niet de enige ben die klungelt om een beanbag te vullen 😀 haha.
    Ik zag jouw prachtige houten vloer ondergrond liggen (waarop je de beanbag vult) die ziet er super gemakkelijk en mooi uit. Mag ik vragen waar je die hebt gekocht??
    Alvast bedankt! En blijf van deze leuke video's maken!!

  5. Hi Fenna . . . I filled a huge square poser , and made a big funnel from a piece of Bristol board ( heavy poster board ) It was so easy , and I had hardly any escape !! LOL .. They poured directly into the bean bag without too much difficulty ! How are you liking the new Paloma Schell compared to your old one ? Was the one you purchased earlier , a smaller table top version ?

  6. Fenna… love your videos!

  7. Hi fenna could you let me know what type was your material you used on the palmoa shell thanks

  8. F Vand says:

    Hallo Fenna, Wat een geweldige pagina! Ik volg met veel plezier je filmpjes en steek er elke keer weer veel van op. Super om naar te kijken en om te zien hoe jouw dagen gevuld zijn met zulk mooi werk! Welke objectieven gebruik je voor jouw shoots? Ik wil graag een nieuwe aanschaffen voor mijn Nikon om met dezelfde shoots te gaan oefenen. Deze moet alleen (nu nog wel) betaalbaar zijn 🙂 Welke zou jij aanraden of met welke ben jij begonnen? Ik hoop nog veel leuke en vrolijke filmpjes te bekijken! Groetjes

    Have you tried the LED continuous light facing into the umbrella and with a diffuser? I'd love an update if you have continued to play around with continuous lighting

  10. A chair that might work well might be a hairdressers stool, You know the black and chrome ones they sit on and has wheels kind of like a computer/office chair and no back, and it's height adjustable. It would allow you to swivel and have full range of movement and still be sitting closely to the baby 🙂 something like these i mean lol

  11. Tim Francis says:

    I love your work!!
    where did you get your flokati please?
    i can find it anywhere!

  12. Thankyou for this!!! I've been looking into purchasing the paloma schell stand for a while now and I was going to just use my own beanbag! It was very handy to see the sizing! beautiful work as always xx

  13. Hi Fenna, I'm really surprise, I'm from Brazil and I watch your videos a long time ago. That's sounds amazing! Thanks to share with us your opinion!!! Bye bye

  14. Eleiffel says:

    Hey Fenna! I love your channel. Could you also talk about your monthly expenses/ earn for this job? Does it worth to start this buisiness ? Thanks

  15. Mary Berry says:

    Do you still use wedges with your beanbag?

  16. Hi Fenna! What are the dimensions of this stand? Do your photos now have the same post processing time as before? I mean does the backdrop not get clipped because the stand has round edges?

  17. Becky F says:

    Try filling in a bath.

  18. Amazing photoshoot .
    Thank You dear .

  19. That baby was wide awake 😲 so precious

  20. Kaleigh J says:

    Can you please do a studio Tour

  21. Rushab Shah says:

    Awesome review, Fenna! Quick question, how different is this one compared to the stand you had ordered from Ali Express a few months back? Also, did you notice a change in how your photos are coming out now?

  22. Hi Fenna, I am Alex, from Italy. I started following you this year, 'cause I wanted to take pics of twins of a friend of mine that gave birth in May, and then my niece arrived in September. I used to photograph all kinds of people in all kind of circumstances, from theatre to artistic nude, from street to whatever event or concert, but I really love happy people, love shooting weddings and kids. I was a biomedical scientist, a researcher, however when I finished my phd in Barcelona 3years ago I moved back to Milan and I went to Istituto Italiano di Fotografia for a couple of years. I wish I could live with my passion but I am just starting out as a free lance (who can't right now afford a newborn workshop or have a studio) so I practice at home with dolls (and have been a baby sitter for several years when I was studying) and drink up all your videos (and Ana Brandt's)… and always wait for your next one like kids wait for Christmas. THANKS, all you do really helps a lot and it is to me super inspiring!

    I will wait of course look forward to your next reviewing but.. Do u think Paloma Shell is so different from the one you didn't like so much from Aliexpress? I recall you like to be on the floor… did you change your mind? I think the ball might be a valid alternative to the chair. And the fact you can rotate the stand easily is very interesting to me. Does your warming still work fine with that height? The shots look just the same amazing… what's the difference with your previous structure? Thanks a lot!!!
    PS: really happy you decided not no move out from your perfect studio! :))

  23. Adrian Yup says:

    would you be selling your other bean bag setup as I would be interested 😀

  24. sandra Etsa says:

    I love your videos, I'm a Mexican photographer

  25. Sana Imran says:

    Wow new music!!!!! I Love your videos

  26. In Russia, the @ jazzwood.rnd (Instagram) stand is very popular now. It is expensive, but studio owners acquire it.)

  27. Where did you order your bean bag fillers?

  28. Hi Fenna! You release your videos at about 9pm my time, so I'm typically in bed when I get the notification. Love the music you use for the sessions; it's very moving and relaxing, so it's great …but my wife does wonder what I'm watching and why I get a little emotional 😅😅

  29. Beautiful!❤ looking forward to getting one of these.😊

  30. i don't think you need it
    your old bean bag is already looks nice and your photos are still the same "beautiful" even with the new Paloma Schell

  31. Interesting to see the difference between this and the one you found on AliExpress. It seems taller but more narrow.

  32. i am new subriber and I loved your vidoes and You are very talented with your photographers and i been a photographer for ten years now and I am 28 years old now and if u want u can subribe to my channel as well.
