July 29, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Here are a few tips I've learned that have helped me and will hopefully help you get better photos.

  1. Get down to their level.people, baby, birthday, first birthday, boy, baby boy
  2. Move in for a close upbaby, baby girl, girl, first birthday, party, party hat, portrait
  3. Watch what's in the background.girls, glasses, portrait, children children, girl, young girl, portrait
  4. Don't always center your photo.children, girl, portrait, child
  5. Use your flash, couple, family portraits,
  6. Watch for unwanted shadows or hot spots on faces.portrait, couple, family, family portraits, people

There are so many good tips online. I use YouTube for some good ideas and am always looking at other people's photography. I hope these have helped some.
