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.
