When you visit monuments, have you ever been frustrated by the challenge of photographing kids with them? The monuments are often so HUGE, and your kids are so small. The difference in size and scale alone is overwhelming, not to mention the crowds of people that are often in the way. Not knowing what else to do, you do what most tourists do…you have the kids stand together, smile at the camera, and get your unsatisfying snapshot after having traveled hundreds of miles to be here. Want a different option for the next time? Below is a NEW Capture Your Story episode, How to Photograph Historic Monuments, that my husband, Brian, and I filmed with the kids (and camels) while in Egypt (insert YAHOO!!!).
Watch how we tackled this problem when the pyramids were crazy big and our kids were so small! Then get even more tips below for photographing kids with monuments!
Whether you have a smartphone or favorite travel camera, these simple steps will change your monument photos overnight (not to mention the stories your photos will spark for years to come)!
Feel free to always post any photography questions for me on my FB page, or you can share your own family/monument photos!
