How To Take Better Pictures of Your Children

Children can be a fun, yet challenging, subject to photograph. Every child reacts differently to the camera. Some love it and ham it up at every opportunity, while others want to run away and forget they ever saw it. Here are some ideas to help your kid shoot go as smoothly and as quickly as possible. Relax. It’s easy to get nervous before photographing children because they can be unpredictable. If you’re anxious, the child will pick up on it. Relax and let your happiness show through. That way both the parent and child will be calm around you, and you’ll all be pleased with the results. Even if the child misbehaves or cries, you can get some great photos if you’re paying attention. If you’re fun to be around, the child will be too. Be flexible. You may end up with a child who wants to do nothing more than play with his monster trucks. Go with it. Let him play and take action shots of him scooting across the floor saying, “Vroom!” Brush up on your repertoi...

 


Get Mom a Smartphone Built for the Drops and Spills of Everyday Life

(News USA) Smartphones have become ingrained in our lives: as personal assistants, mini computers, navigators, gaming devices and more. But the average device can’t withstand the rigors of everyday life. In fact, the yearly volume of cracked screens and waterlogged phones suggest many people’s daily lives aren’t safe enough for smartphones. Most moms know their smartphones won’t even survive 5 minutes with a toddler. It’s not just construction crews, contractors and other outdoor, on-the-go jobs that demand a rugged smartphone. Avid hikers, fitness buffs, concert goers, athletes, cooks and the average parent can all attest to the need for some digital gear that helps them live more and fear their technology less. Most phones aren’t equipped for the daily rigors of parenthood, let alone adrenaline-seekers who rock climb, bike, kayak and ski or snowboard regularly....

 


Things to Remember When Taking Photos

It’s easy to point your camera at something that caught your eye and click the button. Yes, this makes it a photo, but is it any good? It’s not so easy to get a photo that grabs your eyes and makes you proud. So, what do you do if you are a newcomer to photography? Practice, of course, and keep these tips in mind. Choose an object you like, a simple household object... anything you might like in your house or something in your yard, like a flower, tree or a hanging birdhouse. Take several photos of your selected object. Ten photos shot from different angles would be a good set to start with. And come back to it at different times of the day because of the different lighting conditions. It doesn’t matter so much what you pick to photograph right now as it’s just practice. But do pay attention to what your results look like. You need to learn to see different shapes, colors, patterns and shadows. After a few weeks of working with different angles and colors, your perspective will...

 


Elevate Your Photography by Using Props

Props can make a photo pop, or they can distract viewers’ eyes from the person you’re photographing. Some photographers and clients love having them, while others want nothing to do with them. Should you use them in your photography business? That depends on where you are and what kind of photos you take. If you specialize in taking golden anniversary photos, props may not be necessary. If you do portraits, they would be a distraction. If you’re a children’s photographer, then props can help your shoot go smoothly and create those extra-cute photos the parents want. When you book the shoot, you might ask your clients whether they would like to use props. It may not have occurred to them, and asking ahead will give them time to think about it. It will also help them figure out what kinds of photographs they’re hoping to get out of the session. When photographing kids and props, ask parents to bring items that are meaningful to them. For example, a former rodeo queen mig...

Top 10 Tips For Photography Beginners

Not everyone wants to be a professional photographer, but surely everyone who takes photos wants them to look good. After all, photos keep our memories better than we can. So without making this complicated, here are some tips on how to make your snaps better. 1. When taking pictures of people, their heads should be in the top one third of the frame, not in the middle. 2. Look at the background before you take the picture. If your people are standing in front of something ugly or distracting, have them move over to a better spot. 3. Likewise, make sure everyone’s face is in the sun or light. Move them out of the dappled shade and take off hats with bills that cast shade on the face. It doesn’t work when one is in shade, another is in sun, and a third has both playing across her face. 4. Don’t take pictures of objects or people when you’re facing the sun. The front of the object or the faces will be in shadow. The best way to remember this is the people you’re going to ...
