Photographing Children - A few little tricks of the trade from the professionals

Better Hurry, they are growing up fast… even as you read this!

Children are the best subjects of all - toothless smiles, reckless jubilation, crocodile tears, silliness, and all the joyful occasions. Here are some tips for insuring your photos of children are even more memorable.

Meet them eye-to-eye
Bring yourself down to the child's level, even if you need to crouch down. This will give your shots a 'kids eye view' and won't distort their image (as taking the shot from above does).

Capture natural expressions
While posed shots are great, often better results can be gained by capturing an image when their thoughts are preoccupied with something else - i.e. while busy with crafts or hard at play. You'll capture their faces enjoying the moment rather than thinking about the camera.

Familiarity insures success
Children who have grown up having their photo taken will be a lot less likely to freeze or show off in front of a camera. Start early and make photo taking a part of every day out.

Children grow up quickly
Record their growth from toddler to child to young adult by taking a family photo every year around the same time - either the first day of school, or during spring events.

Now HURRY and start capturing the important moments of your child's life. On DropShots you can display and archive your youngster's childhood along with all the support and comments of friends and family over the years!
