We have all appreciated Jason Lee’s creative children’s photography with their daughter as a model. The shooting project started in 2006, when his mother was diagnosed with non -Hodgkin lymphoma. Because his daughter was often sick, they could not let them visit their grandma. So Jason continued to take pictures of the daughters, so that the grandchildren could meet each other.
The photos taken by Jason for his daughter can be said to be unlimited. I believe many people who have seen his works hope to take the same wonderful photos for their children. Here, I shared with you 10 creative children’s photography skills with you, hoping to inspire you.
1. Plan in advance
A lot of props need to be used for taking children’s photos, and the scenes are arranged in advance, so sometimes it is more helpful to plan before taking pictures. Generally, girls are more obedient than boys. They can take good photos in only 1-2 minutes.
2. We all like to smile
Not only do adults like to smile, children also like to laugh. I almost don’t need to tell them that what they want to do is laugh, telling them “laughing one”, it is better to find a way to tease them, such as a joke or interesting thing, do a funny action or sound, it is easy to laugh and laugh. child.
Generally speaking, children are lively and difficult to fix a posture. Instead of ordering them to do, it is better to play a game with them, you make a posture, and they imitate.
4. Breaking the determination of thinking
Paint on the wall? Really? It’s not true, but this idea will excite children. Tell them your thoughts that make them excited and eager to try. Don’t forget to hide your paint bucket in the future.
5. Join them and appear together in front of the camera
Don’t just shoot them behind the camera, join them, it will be more interesting. You can use the delayed camera function and tripod of the camera. If there is no tripod, you can let the relatives and friends around you help take a picture.
6. Use some props
For example, toys, they can be taken when they are not forgotten to toys, or they can also prepare some food. Children are very cute to eat seriously.
Small rewards and small bribes are always effective. When they do well, they can reward some small snacks or small red envelopes.
8. Photoshop magic
When you need some cooler effects, such as wanting your children to swim in space, or fly in the sky, you can learn PS, you can use your imagination in PS, and then get the effect you want.
9. There are always reasons for taking pictures
Think about those festivals, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Halloween, New Year, Easter. Even if there are no festivals, we still have birthdays, anniversary, carnival and so on.
10. Keep the photo simple
If possible, remove everything. I like clean and simple pictures. The main body of the photo should be a model, not anything that may disperse the attention of the audience.
