Finding great light when capturing your child in pictures makes all the difference between a good and bad photo. If your kids are often blurry, you most likely don’t have enough light to freeze the action. If you pop the flash, your child’s skin will look washed out leaving a five o’clock shadow on her face. Does that mean we are doomed with fall and winter upon us? Do we need summer sunsets to get great lighting in our photos? Even more so, do you need expensive camera equipment to capture great results? Not at all. In my new book, Your Child in Pictures
(the follow up from Your Baby in Pictures), I share hundreds of photo tips on how to capture magical photos of your child ages one to ten. Regardless of whether you are indoors, outdoors, dealing with cloudy days or harsh sun, you learn the tricks that I use all the time! Here are eight of my favorite tips for finding great light when capturing your child in pictures. A little something to get you started! *Adapted in part from Your Child in Pictures.
