Assignment: Photographing Children 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 in my garage studio using a white seemless paper backdrop, a studio light pointing straight at the backdrop that was attached to my garage door opener track near the ceiling to get the color pure white, and two soft boxes on the subject.
