When you have your shot lined up and it is time to hit the shutter button, stop breathing for a moment and don’t move a muscle. Even minimal movement can cause your perfect shot to be ruined. For the perfect shot, you must take time and focus your energy on getting the perfect view and angle before pressing the shutter button.
Squat, kneel, or bend down so that your camera is level with the child’s eyes. This allows you to get the child’s whole face into the photograph. It’s very easy to do, but makes a huge difference in the quality of your pictures.
When you have the shot set up, don’t delay! If you hesitate, you may miss the moment you are trying to capture because of your subject moving. The quicker you and your camera are, the better shots you will get.
Have you ever had to take pictures of subjects that had been in the rain? Mimic the look of rain drops even when it’s sunny by spritzing your subject with a spray bottle full of water.
When you are choosing which photographs you want to display, look at each picture you have taken and only choose your favorites. Don’t show too many photos and vary the subject matter. Your audience can become bored with repetitive images or too many of them. Keep things fresh by showing off a variety of your photography.
Not everyone wants to take pictures, but everyone loves looking at a nice picture. By becoming a photographer, you’ll bring images to the world that otherwise might not have been seen. An exciting, fulfilling hobby to participate in is photography. Sharing the photos you take is also a wonderful way to blow off some steam and take a break from life.
