42nd Street Photo: Kiddos

Kids are one of the most popular subjects to photograph. Whether you are a professional or a parent who is proud, you will most likely find yourself shooting countless photos of kids.

There are numerous things to keep in mind when doing a photo shoot or taking shots of kids.

  • It is important that you have a camera with the ability to capture action. Kids are full of energy which equals action, naturally. Whether you choose a point and shoot or a manual camera, the capabilities your camera has can make all the difference in your photos.
  • Other things to consider include the subjects themselves. You need to start working well with kids whether you like them or not! You will not get good photos if you are not appealing to the kids. Have fun and kick up the energy…it is sure to be a good time for all involved if you do!
  • Remember that when you have kids in a contained area, they can quickly lose interest. Have your plans set already so that you are not stopping to think and wasting good attention span. You can take them outside and get some great natural shots as they let loose.

Whatever you decide to do when you are photographing kids, keep these things in mind. 42nd Street Photo has hundreds of cameras just waiting for you. Choose and order yours today!
