Children Photography is all about Changing your view, Change your Photography….Powerful words. Changing your view makes a huge difference to your photography.

If I can put it simply, learning from children photography, one can apply certain basics that will impact and enhance your photography for years to come. Foundations in children photography is the key essential. Photographing children has helped me to understand, by getting get down to a childs level and by changing my view and perspective will help me to look through the lens differently.

Did you know that your eye is set at 50mm and as an adult we look down on life where as a kid looks up and at a low level through life.

A lot of Photographers are more concerned with the right equipment or how to learn the light etc. All these are extremely important and will make a huge difference, but I truly believe that by changing your view you can change your Photography.

I use a term in my photography which I call the angle of attack. This term is derived from fighter pilots who needs to attack at the right angle to complete a mission or task. This also applies to landing an aircraft, the right angle is nessesary the land massive steel and people, The wrong angle and it becomes fatal. Sjoe, Its intense I know!!!! Lets take a step back without the fatal part. The right angle in which you shoot will let people see your point of view in the photograph from your perspective.

Here is my foundational tips on how to change your view

1) Get down on the ground as low as possible. Anna Kuperberg does this wonderfully. Please review her work closely and note her angle on Photographs 

2) Use a wider angle lens.

3) Capture hands, feet and objects that are miniature in real life and make them appear bigger with regards to a human scale such as a hand.

4) Children Photography, Children Photography, Children Photography….Shoot more children and look at what they are looking at. Learn from their energy.

 

Always remember…Change your view, Change your Photography
