Many photographers say that it is difficult to photograph children, because they are constantly not sitting still. But, at the same time, the children are so sweet, make such funny expressions and take such bizarre poses that you can not remain indifferent when you see such a photo.
Infants need to be photographed without a flash. A bright light can frighten a child. Everyone knows that in the first months of life, children sleep much. This can be successfully used, for example, as Anna Geddes did – a famous photographer who captures children, including in a dream. Yes, everyone can take a picture of a crumb sleeping in his cradle. But to make the photo memorable, beautiful and original, you need to fantasize a little. Put, for example, a sleeping baby on a green blanket, put on a cap with horns, and next place his favorite toy. It turns out that funny little animals sleep on the lawn. To invent costumes, poses, backgrounds is a real creativity for a young mother.
If the child does not sleep, then it is necessary that when taking pictures it is as comfortable as possible. Therefore, the baby should be full, dry and in a good mood. Photographing the fowl is better in their familiar surroundings. Excellent reasons for photo: walk in the fresh air, favorite game, swimming. A traditional family photo is in the hands of parents.
Children under one year are most often photographed lying down. But it is better not to do this from above, but at eye level, from the side. And the main secret of a great picture of a child is to take pictures, dropping to the level of the child's face. Pictures will be more expressive.
Do not force children pose. Most of them do not like this. Let everything be natural. The best photos – made imperceptibly for the baby.
Children grow very quickly. Therefore, capturing the baby beautifully, brightly and originally, you can keep the memory of his first months of life for many, many years.
