Photographing children can be a challenge, requiring patience and a healthy dose of playfulness. This book works through nearly 60 images, providing lighting diagrams and step-by-step instructions for using poses, props, and backgrounds that help make photographing children easier. Tips are given on how to choose clothing that best focuses the viewer's attention on the child, photographic techniques used to capture images, and psychology used when working with children-such as never scheduling a portrait session near nap or mealtimes. Included are tips for good exposure, equipment selection, use of light meters and lighting, outdoor situations, and special-occasion photography.
Douglas Allen Box lectures extensively on photographing children, weddings, and portraiture and is the author of Professional Secrets of Wedding Photography and Natural Light Portrait Photography. He lives in Caldwell, Texas.
