Overview

Photographing children and babies constitutes a large portion of the business in most portrait studios. For the photographer, working with young children who are nervous or uncooperative can present a formidable challenge. Beginning with infants, this book discusses the specific details of photographing children at every stage of growth, addressing age-specific psychology and attention spans. Technical information on posing and lighting, including props, backgrounds, low and high key lighting, and special effects, is supplemented with advice on making children comfortable and cooperative. Special attention is given to how sights and sounds will soothe a baby or get his or her attention for the best portrait.
