Shoot for WuddlyWorld Japan
SHooting kids is one of the biggest challenges for me, it can be very easy, and it can be very difficult, depending on how you communicate with the kids! It's kinda simple to shoot adult models, who probably know what they want, and you know what you want, so it's just enough to speak the same language to be able to communicate but with the kids you should play with them at the same time, by saying 'play' I mean not only play games, but play with their brain to be able to relax them. For me sometimes works really ok, but sometimes doesn't~ ;) When it doesn't the best think is to have an initerpeter, and I really mean interpreter, though we speak the same language with the kids, but their mother for example might be an interpreter for what I'm trying to tell to the kids~ ;)
Hope I'm gonna have more chances to shoot kids from now! One thing is important for them, they need to have fun, and if you want to make them feel good, just let them play! Hope I will be able to improve my communication with them! Here some more of my photos with kids: CLICK!
