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.
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.
Finding your style takes time and whether we know it or not, it more or less finds us (over time). The idea of "finding the story" is crucial to good image making and I can't agree with Dan more. When I was still in my teens one of my photography mentors taught me to shoot either "motion or emotion" and Dan covered this too. Great!
Of course, this ebook also covers lighting. And while I noticed Dan covered this subject in other books too, he repeated it and I am glad he did because the first time I read it I sort of got it (it was just starting to sink into my brain). And by repeating it I finally got it down pat.
Thanks, Dan, for your wonderful treatise on photographing children. It was both insightful AND inspiring!
If I'm looking to photograph children then this is the book to get! So I did.
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.
