Though children’s portraiture is a sub genre of portraiture and relies upon many of the same techniques used to photograph adults and families, working with children and fine-tuning your approach to bring out the best in your young subjects requires a somewhat different methodology. You must ensure that your subjects are engaged in the session, receptive, and simultaneously must respect and capture the essence of their brimming personalities in each frame.
In this book, seasoned pro Ed Pedi teaches you simple techniques for producing timeless children’s portraiture. He presents step-by-step techniques for creating effective, flattering lighting in the studio and on location and shares detailed lighting diagrams that make replicating this setups a snap. He also outlines kid-friendly poses suitable to traditional portraits of children of all ages and offers tips on connecting with children to elicit must-capture expressions parents are sure to love.
