Tip of the Week: The Joy of Parenthood


Just like any genre of photography, photographing parents is great when it is a completely candid affair. Don’t ask them to pose. Let them get on with their daily activities, while you become almost invisible to them. You can choose a spot and shoot with a telephoto lens, and get truly natural moments. Also, the most viable source of light is natural light. Ask your kids to stand or sit next to a window for good directional light. A piece of white thermocol can act as a handy reflector, while simply drawing the curtains can help you diffuse strong afternoon light.
