Thanks Rebecca, I shoot children often in school. Just shot out own Olympics game. pity I am not allowed to share with on the internet.
Photographing children can be a challenge,
but also lots of fun.
Here are some tips we posted previously.
Get on their level!
Your photos will improve dramatically if you photograph
children at their level
rather than the standard adult looking down on the child.
Rather than trying to get posed shots,
let the kids play
and capture WHO they are
not just what they look like.
Children are active.
Set you camera to the Continuous shoot option and
capture a series of shots of them at play.
Play Simon Says.
Simon can suggest actions
or facial expressions that are fun.
And when someone goofs,
the reactions are fun too.
Give them Something to Do...then SHOOT!
