Moms who are always on a lookout for beautiful photos of their kids are always more than willing to go the extra mile to get those pictures. The innocence of children is best captured in their eyes and smile, but only at the right time and the right place.
So clicking pictures in which the most adorable and beautiful smiles of your little ones is in prime focus is a tedious process. Moms simply cannot swish their wands and wish for a beautiful smile while you have a camera in hand.
That smile can come at any time and at places where you least expect it. So to avoid disappointment, go through these simple photography tips and tricks that will help you capture that moment.
1. Run and jump with them
Play with the kids and take pictures on the go. Not only will the children feel comfortable since you will be involved in their activity or game, but it will also give you a great chance to capture them in their uninhibited state.
2. Do not say cheese
This is the best way to kill a natural photo... saying cheese. So avoid that and wait for the moment when your kid smiles on his own.
3. Ask them to go crazy
You will be amazed how kids are dying to hear those words. They love free license and will go berserk with excitement – and thats your cue to start clicking. Of course it is best to try this trick outdoors since breakages may happen in the house.
4. Bribe them if need be
Yes, it is a cruel world. But you will see that small bribes like a chocolate for not getting off a chair, or for co-operating in a photo shoot, sometimes becomes necessary.
5. Have fun
The key is to make them believe that they are having fun at the same time. Crack jokes or make faces which will help them warm up to you. The reactions you will get will be your priceless picture. You can ask them to be their own boss and pose the way they want, which will also produce some startling results.
