Photographing kids is a fun past time, but it isn’t always easy. Here are some photography tips for parents to help you capture the best moments.
1. Learn about the camera you’re using
Even if you only use your phone to take photos, chances are it has some cool features you can play with. For example, many smartphone cameras have a panorama option that allows you to combine multiple photographs into one comprehensive one.
2. Be mindful at all times
Sometimes it’s easy to get carried away with taking and looking through photographs. Don’t take your eyes off your kids even when you have the perfect shot and want to show it off, especially if you’re outdoors.
3. Taking photos inside? Use windows
Rooms have different natural light throughout the day. Use natural light from the windows to get amazing shots.
4. Let them run free
One of the most useful tips for parents, whether you’re taking photos or not, is to let your little ones loose for a while. Don’t let them out of your sight, and make sure you’re in a safe environment, but allowing kids to run and play instead of making them pose for the camera can get you some beautiful candid photos.
5. Chase the sunrise and sunset
Some of the most flattering natural lighting happens a few hours before sunset, and a few hours after sunrise. Aim for photos during those times.
