Photographing At The Speed of A Four Year OldPosted by Katrina Kennedy on Jan 9, 2010 in Blog, Photography | 6 comments
Photographing children is not easy. Photographing your own children can be, um…challenging. I believe getting light, mood, location, and settings to all coincide is a bit of an art.
Receiving a new hat and scarf from your Mumzy (his grandma for those worried he calls me Mumzy) is a great reason for photos. And nothing says four year old better than the clashing of shirt stripes with hat and scarf. When you get the willing subject, sometimes that means you get the cheesy grin in the less than perfect location.
So you entice him to move to get a better background, but now…
the background is better but wow, that face? Seriously? THAT is not my child. And light, is okay, but still not what I want.
