...a fantastic amateur s guide to getting the best shots of children. (Digital Photography Enthusiast, August 2011).

From the Back Cover

Capture and Preserve the Memories of Childhood

This book is not about photographic technology, although it provides what you need to know. Rather, it is about inspiration — identifying and trusting your own vision for your photographs; honing your perspective, your sense of timing, your personal interpretations. Here's where you'll learn to put aside any fear of the technology and concentrate on seeing and capturing those perfect moments that preserve the uniqueness of every child.

  • Seek out your own inner child and let that guide your interaction with your subjects

  • Learn to find and develop your own personal style

  • See how to change the mood by changing the light

  • Know how to compose photos effectively without compromising spontaneity

  • When editing your images, focus on your vision

Thrilled that I found this book before my son turned one! Filled with practical, immediately accessible advice (lighting, clothing, alignment!), it's the perfect tool for a new parent or anyone who wants to capture the magic of childhood. Incidentally, I also got this book for my sister-in-law who is more of a pro and she said she uses it all the time! I especially appreciate the inspiring photos with informative captions (who/when/where/how) and all of the little tips and ideas that I've put to immediate use!

The best of this book is the balance between the technical information and ideas for shooting, leaving from the commonplace. Says the author of the book that many amateur photographers or hobbyists begin photographing children when they become parents. It is at this point that this book becomes useful, showing the necessary photographic techniques for child and teen photography and lots of interesting ideas, easy to hold, able to make your photos more interesting and with great quality.

This book has been my favorite since the last edition. Amateur and pro can benefit. While a pro may not need the basics (which are provided clearly, practically and concisely!) it also has some great creative ideas, My favorite part is the insight only a seasoned master pro can give. It's also nice to have a complete book - covering camera basics, set up basics and post processing basics. I fnd myself going back to it more than my other books.

Seriously- if you want to get real about becoming a children's photographer- this book has EVERYTHING you'll ever need. There is noting the author hasn't addressed in this book. A real gem, and the author is an expert on the subject. You can't miss with these instructions.

This book is exactly what I was looking for - I had searched all the big stores for something like it, but couldn't find it. Finally, a book that is thorough and informative in a way that I had been looking for! The author is the epitome of professional and kind to boot. Written in a way that captures the reader, this book is worth every penny. If you are already a photographer or are interested in children's portraiture, this book is a must have!

This book inspires not only those who have prior experience but those who are just dabbling in photography as well. Several well known and talented photographers featured with great examples of the right way to approach natural light photography! A must read for sure! A book you will come back to for reference. Great buy!

This is a wonderful book that does exactly what it is supposed to do. It tells you how to take photographs that capture all the spontenaity, innocence, humor and enthusiasm that is a child. She is the Ansel Adams of little people.
