LensBaby Family


Here is a great shot of Dad and Son.  I used the LensBaby composer to get an abstract photo.  They really like it, and so do I.  This is from a family vacation where I was taking a ton of photos.  The composer is a fun lens to have to get some pictures that are a little different.

The closer the better

Look for details when photographing kids.  Can you capture the determination of a child learning to crawl, or the curiosity when exploring a new object.  The closer you can get the better.  Get down on the level with your subject so that you can get a new perspective.  Life happens outside, get out and take the camera.  Think outside the box when you are working with the kids.  Keep the shutter clicking, those kids can be so cute, you don't want to miss that "it" picture.   You might like what you come out with, if not, you can always take your tradition photos, too.
