Format: Paperback
"Photographing Children in Black and White" was a pure joy in everyway as the author describes in detail all aspects of a shoot. The fine documented prints in the book illustrate her ability to capture not only the child's physical qualities, but also their unmistakable personality. From the beginning of the book, the author shows her true love for children and the relationship of each of her "shooters" and how they come to life in the pages, whether on a sandy beach at dusk, or in the surf at high tide. The chapters explain everything from what film speed and film works best in certain situations to what clothing the subjects should wear for a shoot. Although technical in nature, the writing was easily understood by myself, a somewhat novice in the field.
I would recommend this book for anyone that wants to learn to all aspects of children's photography. The author's prints tell much more than the book on her creative gift of capturing a treasure of paper...the simple face of a child.

I found this book to be extremely helpful in many ways. From dealing with film selection to "getting parents to step aside", each chapter has multiple ideas regarding photographing children. I was especially pleased with the sections on lighting, groups and adding family pets to the portraits. Also, the photography included in the book is inspiring. I consider this to be a great resource for amateur photographers and a terrific idea book for the professionals.

Helen Boursier made her artistic talent shine. Her book was practical and inspiring. Her photographs are wonderful in how they depict the childs personality without intimidating the reader. Her work and words were inspiring. One of the best photography books I've read.

I did not like this book at all. I'm a beginner and I'm trying to learn everything I can. I felt as though I didn't learn anything from this book. I wasn't too impressed with the photos. I would not recommend this book. I had a professional photographer review the book and she agreed with me.
