Photographing Children Pt. 1

Get paid when someone looks at your photos

Description

Everyone wants great pics of their children - but photographing children presents a unique set of challenges.

When photographing small children you never know what's going to happen so you need to have your camera set up and ready to go. And in this film I'm going to take you through that.

We'll look at choosing the right focal length to achieve the look you want, setting depth of field for a nice soft background and making sure you don't end up with soft pictures because of camera shake.

When photographing children you also need to think about where you're going to photograph them. Is the location somewhere stimulating for them or somewhere they'll feel inhibited? What time of day are they at their most excited and lively? It's not going to work if you try photographing your kids when they're tired and grumpy!

Photographing children is great fun and very rewarding when you get amazing images that captures their spirit. In photographing children pt2 we'll do the shoot itself and I'll tell you what I'm doing and why.

commasopencommascloseUltimate Beginners Course is worth every penny. Mike's delivery in the videos is excellent . You get the technical explanations without the techno babble and then are encouraged to get out there and practice, practice, practice, and for me, that's the game changer. Working through the exercises is a must, but loads of fun, and you can revisit them as often as you like if you're not sure of something.
