Shooting tips for parents

March 15, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Our kids grow up so fast and their faces change a lot during their first 10 years. With everyone carrying a smartphone today, it's more easier than ever to capture images and you the parents or their siblings, have the best opportunity to take natural looking images of them 'as they really are'.

In the picture below of sport photographers in the background, they are all in a low position relative to the player - Getty sport photographers are known to be some of the best in the world - compare the eye level of the 3 photographers in the yellow bibs in front of the advertising boards. Guess which one of the 3 is the Getty photographer? (and no disrepect meant to the other  - all photographers in the image are good)  - correct - the guy on the far right.

So if the best shooters can get this low to shoot 6ft+ rugby giants, how much lower do we need to be to capture images of our kids?

At least get down to their eye level - instead of  the normal 'top of their head' images, you'll suddenly not only see their full faces, but also engaging expressions in their faces, happy to see someone at their level.

Happy shooting!
