Quick Camera Tweaks: Kids’ Photography Tips

Camera Tweaks for Kids’ Photography

As parents, we always want to capture the best photos of our children. However, taking pictures of a child is not an easy task! These Kids’ Photography Tips assist you in mastering kids’ photography.   

Camera Settings that Help Kids’ Photography

1- Posing children in front of the camera is next to impossible. Kids don’t have the patience. Therefore, you need to set the camera beforehand. Set the exposure, i.e. ISO, Shutter Speed, and Aperture. Check the foreground and the background to remove unwanted items. Then bring the child to the scene.

Kids Photography Tips
When posing your kids for photo, set the camera . Kids don't have patience. So, be quick!

2- I prefer to capture the child’s personality. Therefore, I am not a big fan of posing in kids’ photography.

Alternatively, I’d like to capture photos while they are themselves. Let them be playful, crazy and funny. After all, that is who they are. So, to maintain the sharpness of pictures, the following camera settings are necessary.
a) Kids move fast. I wouldn’t use a shutter speed slower than 1/120sec for kids.

A fast shutter speed allows you to capture children's activities.

b) Using the Continuous Drive Mode allows me to hold the shutter release button down and capture multiple images. So, I can pick up the best ones later.
c) As children move around, the focusing distance changes constantly. Using Continuous Focus Mode tracks the child’s movement and keeps focusing on the kid.

Use Continuous focus to keep the subject in focus.

Ice-breaking During Kids’ Photography Sessions

Children get bored so quickly. Therefore, have their favourite toys and snacks handy. For sure, you need to bribe them!

As soon as you noticed that the kid is bored, stop taking photos, and start a new thing, such as playing or even making funny faces. This approach changes the situation, and you never know, you might be able to take some fantastic photos from the game or the funny faces!

Kid’s Portrait Photography Techniques

Kid’s Portrait Photography Techniques Workshop

” I want to take better pictures of my kids and tried my best with no success! It is almost impossible to capture their unique personality in a photo as they won’t stay for a pose! Should it be this difficult to take pictures of kids?”

This is one of the main questions that we receive from our previous students and friends. That is why Tamara and I decided to plan a workshop just for “Kid’s Portrait Photography”.

There are several different specialties in photography which make it one of the most interesting trades of all. Kid’s portrait Photography is one of them. You need to be equipped with knowledge, techniques, and a passion to photograph children.

In the Kid’s Portrait Photography Workshop, we are going to teach you the techniques and skills you need to succeed, since taking this workshop it tells us that you have the passion already. You can be one of those very successful Kid’s photographers!

For the first part of Kid’s Portrait Photography Workshop, Tamara will start you off with the basics of your camera, equipment, and framing. Then will follow with some tips, suggestions, and a chance for you to ask questions. There will be a couple weeks for you to practice what you have learned in class, as well as to gather any extra equipment that you may want to bring along.

The second part of Kid’s Portrait Photography will be all hands-on, working with children whom you will pose and photograph. You will learn how to choose a good location and work with the lighting to create your shot, as well as pose and interact with your subject to get just the right look.
