Some Tips In Getting Photos of Your Kids

Published by Ellen Joy at 9:29 pm under How To, babies

If you’ve got your kodak digital cameras ready and your baby is all dressed up and just perfect for a photo shoot, that doesn’t mean that she is indeed ready to have her picture taken. Actually, there is no “ready-for-a-photo-shoot” moment for babies and that is why it is hard to take pictures of kids. The secret in taking good pictures of our young ones relies on timing and the photographer’s techniques. Here are some of it.

1. Don’t use flash because babies and kids cannot help but close their eyes when the light flashes. Instead, quit the flashing and increase the ISO when your shutter speed becomes lower.
2. Shoot them when they are at their best – playing or sleeping.
3. Use natural lighting. Shoot outdoors before the day ends or during the morning, before noon.
4. Make the background colorful, but not too crowded with designs.
5. Try zooming and focusing on the babies’ expressions and reactions.
6. Get down on your knees and ’stoop down’ to the child’s level.
7. Take pictures according to the child’s schedule. Know the child is ready for play.
8. Use props like your kid’s favorite toy.
