Overview

Nick Kelsh, king of the kid photographers, tops the success of How to Photograph Your Baby with a brand new book full of tips and techniques that will help anyone take better pictures of bigger people- children, siblings, parents, and grandparents. Produced in the same accessible, easy-to-follow style as its predecessor, How to Photograph Your Family contains nine fold-out lessons. Each one offers sensible instructions on how to take pictures like a pro. Quick tips, do's and don'ts, and photo examples illustrate the application of the techniques. Lessons even feature intentionally incorrect images-typical mistakes-to teach readers what not to do. An introduction and brief technical section explain the basics of photography, and Kelsh conveys it all in his trademark entertaining prose. Follow his friendly advice, and you'll create the family album of your dreams. Topics include shooting formals and candids; posing the family for a group portrait; capturing action, special events, and individual achievements; and photographing a range of ages. Best of all, Kelsh gives great suggestions for when to take pictures, stressing the importance of those everyday moments that may magically transform into special memories. Think of your daughter dressing her favorite doll or your son's first day on the job; Mom tending her beloved flower beds or Dad tooling away with his fishing tackle. Years from now, these are the images that will prompt sentimental smiles and thoughtful pauses.

Nick Kelsh is a renowned photographer whose work has been featured in numerous publications, including on the covers of several books in the prestigious Day in the Life series. He collaborated with author Anna Quindlen to create the best-selling books Naked Babies and Siblings.

The tips in this book are great for both amatuer and experienced photographer. Not only will your pictures of your baby be better, all portraits can benefit from Nick's advice. You can read the book cover to cover in an evening and you'll see results with your next roll of film.

This book has specific, useful suggestions on photographing babies. They aren't necessarily things that would be obvious to an amateur photographer, but all make sense once the author has explained them. The book is filled with good baby photos and a good sense of fun.
