I thought this book was a good read. It covers a lot of issues in photography and gives highlights and good advice on many areas.

I was disappointed with their treatment of depth of field, which is what is in focus. They claim that the aperture (f-stop) determines the depth of field, and discuss this for several pages. It is not until page 196 where they mention that focal length affects depth of field. The focal length discussion needs to be in the depth of field discussion. With a wide angle lens you are going to have a long depth of field, and with a telephoto, you are going to have a shallow depth of field. Many authors make this mistake and send amateurs on wild goose chases because they don't have the proper lens to get the depth of field they seek.

Below are the notes I took for myself from this book. I hope you find them helpful.

Shutter speed can either freeze movement, or cause blurring. The faster the shutter speed, the more likely to freeze motion. On the high end:
* Toddler roaming 1/250
* Kids running 1/500
* Child swinging 1/1000
For noise free results use ISOs of 100-400. Common settings are:
* Sun 100
* Porch light 200
* Overcast day 200-400
* Window light 400
* Indoor w/o flash 800 and up
* Stage performance w/o flash 1600
* Indoor sports event w/o flash 1600
F stop (aperture) affects depth of field
* f/8 to f/22 produce a long depth of field, meaning most things are in focus, this is referred to as shooting closed down.
* For a short depth of field that makes the subject jump out and the background be more blurry use larger apertures. Most photos in this book were shot between f/1.4 and f/5.6. This is called shooting wide.

Put this wonderful book in your shopping cart and hit "buy now" as soon as you can. I wish that I had had this wonderful tool twenty years ago when I was starting my children's portrait business. Each chapter really guides you through the tools that you will need to succeed in taking impressive images of children. If you take it seriously, and do the assignments, you just might start seeing things in a different light, so to speak. Whether you just want to capture whimsical images of your own child as he passes through the phases of childhood, or if you truly intend to make photography more than a passion, but a business, then this book will take you to your desired level.Every page will delight you with amazing images of children. The various contributing photographers offer individual treatments to their subjects showing you a variety of what is plesaing. Read it, work it, absorb it and find your place in this fascinating field. I can't get enough of the timeless beach portraits found in Chapter 7.

Having three daughters, documenting their childhood with photographs is a real priority for me. But I really lacked knowledge on how to take good photographs - I always relied on the auto settings on my camera and the pictures seemed so ordinary. In the attempt to learn more about photography, I purchased this book along with a couple of others. This book, by far, was the most helpful for me. I had been having a hard time wrapping my mind around the concepts of aperture and ISO, but this book really helped me understand! Each picture listed the shutter speed, aperture, and ISO, which helped me see what those things were doing to affect how the picture looked. Also, the pictures were so inspiring and gave me tons of ideas on composition. The assignments at the end of each chapter were helpful in developing my skills. The book was very pleasent to read and it's definitely a book for parents aspiring to become better photographers! My only wish was that the pictures also listed what type of lens was used (so that I could buy it and have the lenses that the professionals used!).

Get this book if you have any interest at all in children's photography. The photos are wonderful and inspiring-- none of those cheesy, high-flash, heavy-filter shots so depressingly common in this genre. I am very proud to have a few of my photos included in this superbly-written and illustrated book. I've looked through others of its type and the advice is usually really obvious. Not so here. Even professional children photographers will learn from this book - I've been making my living at this for 10 years and still picked up a few things myself.

This book was wonderful in helping me figure out what I was doing wrong, and how to do it right. I have been a closet photographer for most of my life, and had been disappointed by many of my efforts, basically, because I didn't know what I was doing wrong or how to change it. When I had my son, I started taking pictures of him at a break neck pace, and while I got a good shot every 20-30 pictures, I was looking to better return on me effort. This book was the key to that. The pictures in the book are really beautiful too. I highly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
Capturing our children, or as a photographer another person's child, is really one of the most important things one can do. In doing so we are providing a legacy and memory for ourselves and future generations. This book does an excellent job of guiding the novice and the professional in how to best capture children as they are. It provides technical information but more importantly provides you with ideas and assignments that will challenge you to use not only the camera but your heart and life experience to take great images of children. I couldn't find a book that was this easy to understand and this encouraging when I was starting out in the children's photography business and so I was very honored to provide images for this book when asked by the author. There are many years of experience and a great heart behind the words in this book so I would highly encourage anyone interested in photographing children to read it.
