Quick Tips on Photographing Kids
I think there is a reason why documentary style photography has become so popular over the last decade. People want to capture real moments with their family and friends. Parents want to have pictures of their children and their beaming, funny personalities caught in a photograph forever. To capture these moments, I suggest, if you have a Smart Phone, put your camera app icon on the front menu page so you have easy access to your phone when those magic moments appear. If you are like me and love the feeling of holding your DSLR, take it with you everywhere and start shooting the second your child starts making memories. Bottom Line: Keep your camera with you at all times!
2. Consider the rule of thirds.
3. Use Textures and Patterns
4. Love is in the details
