Assignment: Photographing Children
    Dancing Queen
      Photo by: radarbrat

Children are fun and cute and move fast and that can make getting a nice photo of them extremely difficult, but I do have a few tips for slowing them down.

  •  Put them in some nice light and give them something to do- a toy or a pencil...whatever.
  •  Have them stand behind a table or sit in a chair
  •  Don't make them look at the camera all the time, but sometimes say their name and see if they look up and grin.
  •  Be patient and shoot a lot- the perfect shot might be #58.

So find a child, any child and see what sort of cute shots you can get this week. If they'll wear a cape or a tiara...all the better!

This was taken at a random wedding down in Brown County ... one of my favorites as well. I truly enjoy capturing images of children!
