Overview


Contemporary photographs that cleverly capture a child's mood or personality--whether that's a big, toothy grin or a teary tantrum--are easily created with the tips and techniques explored in this in-depth handbook. Often called "lifestyle photography," modern techniques such as tightly cropped close-ups, vignettes, wide angles, and shallow depths produce images that are markedly less stiff and more expressive than traditional portraiture. From capturing great expressions and body language to integrating meaningful locations into the shoot to further express the subject's personality, this guide thoroughly explains how photographers can develop their image-storytelling skills to develop stunning portraits. Advice on creating platinum and chocolate-hued prints, vibrant color scenes, dramatic black & whites, and utilizing unusual textures or effects is also included.

    A must-have for every book shelf

    This book is a joy to not only read, but also just to visually soak up the images. Tamara has a gift of capturing that exact moment that every family wants to remember, from the edge of a good cry to a tender look of vulnerability to just pure joy. The writing is witty while also extremely informative, covering aspects of children's photography that have never occured to me. This book is a must-have for even amateur photographers that just want to take better photos of their children.
