Tuts+ Tips for Child and Family Photography
- Find the best light for the results you want. Nobody wants to be squinting in the midday sun or to be shown in an unflattering light.
- Talk through what the family should wear. Try to get everyone wearing colours that work well together.
- Know your camera. You might want a nice shallow depth of field, but you also don’t want to miss your focus with someone key to your image. Get to know instinctively how to adjust appropriately.
- Get comfortable with arranging people effectively, it can make all the difference to your images so try to overcome any awkwardness.
- Capture candid moments! Don’t be so caught up in posing everyone that you miss those golden moments of families interacting naturally.
