Photographing children is something that's fun. Expression of natural and funny and adorable doings are their main attraction. But making all the charms that you want can be seen in the photo is the challenge.
Learning Photography will share 6 tips that will help you capture the look cute and innocent they are, please try:
Let Them in Action Spontaneous Today we are directing that the children pose in a certain style, they will begin to lose the spontaneity and confidence. So let them stylish and spontaneous expression.
The most powerful way is to invite them to play-a-boo, or if they are too big to play boo, invite them to chat. Ask the name, the name of the mother / father of her, ask her school etc, then let the conversation flow ... Then snap .. snap!
Align the Position Camera With Those Eyes If you want their body looks proportional (no bigger than the head of the body to another), squat or lie . Their bodies are naturally much shorter than us, so we must be willing to squat or lie down. Unless you want a certain effect and angle.
Take advantage of the Tools Not all kids like stylish and graceful pose, especially if they knew they were in the photo. If the child seems awkward, embarrassed or too rigid a tool that you use.
Toys are the most powerful tools, if they like to play dolls give the doll. If they like to play toy cars, toy cars provide. If the toy is not available, you can use a chair, a book or even a pen. That way they will be a little forgotten when you're finished object photos and start spontaneous expression.
Ask The ideals they (or a favorite cartoon character) Children usually have (or students to have) certain ideals or at least have a favorite cartoon character.
Engineers, doctors, footballers, soldiers, teachers, preachers or naruto, superman, batman. Anything. Put the costumes fit the ideals or their favorite characters and the fantasy they will start to drift so lost all stiffness and nervousness. Come flying superman how .... snap!!
Do not Force Them Smile Forced they say "cheeerssss .... ", Then you will get a forced smile, lips drawn stiff. Pose nice not having to always smile and there are some kids who are serious from nature.
Use the Continue Mode / Burst (or Scene Mode: Sports) Because children tend to move more, you will be overwhelmed when looking for a camera to force a focus on Single mode. Use the continue mode / burst or if you use the automatic settings to use sports scene / children. More about the camera scene mode operation
