I've always liked this one...it's of my two kids when they were younger. I had a Nikon Coolpix 950 at the time. I swivelled the lcd round so I could see it from a low angle. Put the camera on the floor and told them there was a mouse inside that operated it. I asked them to look to see if they could see the mouse through the lens and got this as they looked in, wondering if I was joking or not.


Telling young kids that there's someone/thing inside a camera is a great way to get their attention and look directly at the lens.

Took this one some years ago in bangkok during shopping with my Canon A95 compact. named it "Call ###" because at the time it was the only button my daughter could reach. this one wasn't posed or set up at all.


and this one last year. when I went to pick up my daughter after school at the day care, I found her standing like this against that wall. It's not really spontaneous, as I coached her for the shot.


but these aren't exactly great examples of the techniques explained in the forum thread.

Oliver Tudoras ( Bliba ) is one of the most inspirational people on the site when it comes to photographing your kids IMO

I rarely get the opportunity to photograph children other than our one grandchild, Harrison.

This one's from a couple of years ago:

The next two are more recent, from a trip to London just before Christmas:


This one is posed and compositionally poor (bg, aagghh!), but I love it - my great niece wearing my hat at my son's wedding:

I`ve never been big on glass eyes Smile


Softbox as main light, no flash, just modelling light.

Background, barndoors on the cloth, again just modelling light.


Beauty dish, top right, almost above to avoid shadows on face from mesh.

Bachground, barndoors on cloth

Koen, kid in urban setting is excellent.
