When I first started taking photographs of children I was in desperate need of advice and was looking for a resource to steer me in the right direction.
Generally every type of photography requires you to have a knowledge of your camera and lighting. When shooting kids the technical aspect is highly important but is often is secondary. You can have your most perfect setting, the most beautiful lighting, stunning wardrobe and wonderful props but at the moment when you are ready to take that capture the child can burst into tears and run to her Mommy.
Click! eBook goes into every aspect of child photography covering not only the technical part but also psychology of working with kids. Rachel who is not only a great commercial portrait photographer but also a mother of three gives great advice on working with every age group, from babies to teens. This eBook is full of solid tips on working with every type of a child (shy kids, goofball kids, you will not have it your way kids…)
Click! provides recommendations on camera settings, shows lighting diagrams, offers plenty of suggestions on style and props and goes over numerous aspects of composition and camera angles.Also the book includes a great section on retouching and post-production.
The only thing I wish happened, is that this eBook was available years ago when I was just learning.
