I'm excited to announce a mini series Photo Tips for Adventures with Toddlers being featured on Me Ra Koh's blog! For the next few weeks, my photo lessons will be on different days as my posts become live on Me Ra's blog! So you get to start the week off with photo tips for adventures with toddlers! My first post is Five Photo Tips for Capturing Adventures with Toddlers. Whenever it is sunny, the family (yes, the entire family) ventures out to the golf course. It may seem a little crazy to take two little ones to the golf course, but they seem to love it. Although my first adventure is to the golf course, these tips are a great base for any location that you may be taking young children!
1. Pretend Like Your Shooting a Roll of Film. The great thing about digital is that you can see if you captured a moment right away. It’s easy to do a “do-over” right then. It’s also easy to take 400 pictures of a 1 hour outing. Although we want to tell the story of our excursion, we don’t want it to be a flip book. By pretending that I only have a roll of 24 shots, I am forced to slow down and think if the shot is the same thing I just took or is adding to my story.
For the other 4 tips follow the link to Me Ra's Blog - Five Photo Tips for Capturing Adventures with Toddlers. Don't forget to leave a comment if you have an adventure that you'd love tips on. You never know, your suggestion could be my next topic! Stay tuned for next week as the next round of photo tips for adventures with toddlers goes live!
P.S. The best tip I can give you for capturing children is to learn how to use your camera. No more fumbling with settings or sitting on auto and missing the photo you thought you captured! Sign up for my May 31st Growing CONFIDENCE Workshop to break down that fancy DSLR!
