Where to Photograph Children

In this short video you will learn how to find a good place for taking pictures of a child.

Even if you go just outside of your house, you may find lots of opportunities to choose an excellent location for children photography.

First of all a neutral background will help you focus a view's eye on the subject, i.e. the child. In this case we have a non-distracting wall.

You really need to think about bringing something for the child to play with and better if the toys are either his/her favorite or new ones to surprise him or her. What you are looking for is genunine emotions. Try to get a smile on the child's face.

The light can be natural, if it is not too harsh like it happens under direct sun in the middle of the day.

It is a good idea to use a white sheet (placing it simply on the ground) as a reflector to add some light to the subject from below.

You should always be communicating with the child, maintaining his/her attention. Try to fill the frame with your subject and you will be proud of your photos.
