I don't leave reviews often because I'm not always impressesd or influenced by other reviews by others. After reading this book I felt I should. I was impressed on how much was written on lighting and how detailed it was. As a amuture photographer lighting seems to be the hardest to overcome. Taking pictures is an art and this book just improves that ability. Finding the correct shot is crucial and most times its by chance so any ideas to help you with that process is beneficial. I want to thank the author for a well written book that was not to technical for the amuture photographer.

The information presented in this book is quite useful for any photographer who is unfamiliar with lighting techniques but it has very limited information directly related to the title. I was hoping for ideas on posing, dealing with limited attention spans, group interaction, and dealing with the adults around the children. None of these items were mentioned.

Having said that, the information presented was well done and easily understood. It provided material which will be useful for portraits in general. I'm glad that I was able to pick this one up free otherwise I would be quite disappointed.

With the advent of digital photography, and its instant feedback about how a photo looks, many more people are making photos of their children and their friends' children. It is a skill that requires a bit of knowledge to do well. Author Dan Eitreim gives his readers that knowledge.

I owned a photography studio for several decades where I and my employees photographed thousands of children each year. In the time since I sold my business and retired from photography a couple years ago, several people have asked me to teach photography to them. I don't have time. I am doing other activities now.

I was looking for a book to recommend to them about making better photographs of children when I noticed " Photographing Children - Tips, Tricks, And Ideas!" was being offered on one of its special promotion days, so I grabbed a copy to take a look. "Bravo!" I say. this is the perfect answer for anyone who want to know how to make gorgeous portraits of children, and the techniques apply to making portraits of older children too. Get this book. You'll love it.

Photographing Children, Tips, Tricks and Ideas... Is a great book for me. I am not professional, but I love taking pictures. I love the way he teaches. I find that since I have read some of his books that I am looking for all the things he points out to look at. Since I didn't have any young children around, I made my husband pose facing right and left so I could figure out his best side. As I was reading the book I was practicing on my poor husband. I am a hands on person and have to practice what I am reading.
I like the section on lighting. I think that LIGHT is one of the major factors that can make or break a picture. I knew that, but the way he explains it and what light can do is amazing. I don't know if I will get into much expensive lighting equipment, but he gives you some budget tips for manipulating light. I am a nature photographer, but when I take photos of the kids I know, I want to consider all the things that Dan says. I can already see an improvement in my photos. However, the main benefit of signing up for his newsletter and reading his books is that I have taken way more photos in the past month and a half than I have over the past 5 years. He will give you the enthusiasm to take your camera off "auto", know all the details of your camera, and get out there and click away. I love digital cameras because I can trash the learning curve photos. I have even gotten a friend to partner with in my photo-taking fun.
This is a great book. You can take what you like and leave the rest. Then when you are ready or interested in the "rest", come back and read it again.
Gotta go. I have a new grandson that was born last weekend and I am going to get some photos of him today.

I have been an avid reader for over 50 years. During that time I have consumed a ton of photo
magazines and books as well as photo blogs. Having said that I have to say that this book
has unique "outside the box" thinking and techniques like taking a picture of your business card
in case you lose your camera and people can find you to return it.

Another unique lighting technique is having a hair light. I have never ever read about this
light and it rightly claims that this can be the difference in winning a photo shoot.

He accurately describes ring lights as not practical or flattering for portrait photography.

As to the critique about not having techniques for photographing kids, I disagree. The whole
first part of the book is devoted to that.

The book is filled with great information and is definitely a unique contribution to photography and bettering your techniques for better photos, this should be a must buy for anyone wanting to improve their game in photography.
I say that as a competent photographer who has had my pics published.
