My kids are very aware of my blog. I write posts while they play on the floor next to me, and they often have input about what I write about, and which pictures I use. I have always taken a lot of pictures of my kids, but blogging (and, specifically, reading the blogs of talented photographers) has made me more aware of image composition.
I have plenty to learn, but in the meantime what I do know is rubbing off on my kids! The other day, I walked in on the above scene. Emma had moved the kids to a spot where I like to take pictures, because there is more natural light, and she was running a mini photo session using our LeapPad. Remember these adorable pictures of Lily and Johnny? I owe them to Emma! I pulled out my own camera and took them during her photoshoot!
She was paying attention to light, and whether or not there were toys and pictures in the background. All things she has apparently noticed me doing/saying! I look forward to learning more about photography, alongside Emma!
What are your favorite tips for getting great pictures?
