I recently attended two family photo workshops and learned loads of great new tips and tricks that I can't wait to try out!
Did you catch my previous blog post which gave you my 6 key tips to take great photos of your kids? We covered light, noise, height and editing. Today’s blog post is the sequel which will give you 3 more tips to take better photos of your kids.
This time last year I posted a blog called Photography 101, so I thought it was time for your next class – Photography 201! Last time we covered the exposure triangle (aperture, shutter speed and ISO), so today we’ll go a little deeper and discuss composing your images, when to use your flash and tips on how to avoid camera shake.
Don’t worry, I’m not on commission (yet!), but anyone who has met me knows that I work at the speed of light, so I’m always looking for tips and tricks to make life easier. I once bought a nifty little contraption called a WeMo, which allowed me to turn on my electric blanket from my mobile phone when on my way home from work in Winter!
Why should you hire a Family Photographer?
I've made a little video to show you 5 reasons why you should have your family portraits taken. You already know they grow up so fast - so it's great to stop time and capture the memories of today. I also think it's really important that you appear in the photos too - it's really easy to take photos on your phone, but are you ever in them? I would guess rarely! Bring the whole family along - Nanna, the puppy, siblings - everyone is welcome in my studio!
