Photo Tip Of the Week (PTOW): Games for Little Ones

December 6, 2011

I had a fun photoshoot this weekend, with two beautiful children! The 2.5 year old had fun with the pictures for about 5 minutes and then was DONE. She didn’t really want much more to do with it, and that made things challenging!

So finally I came up with the idea of trying to play games with her to get her to have fun and relax in front of the camera. She had a new hat that her grandma made for her and that she loved, so we decided to play peek-a-boo with the hat!

At first I ketp my focus on AIServo so that it would focus with heras she moved, but I found that I was missing the shots as I had only a split second and the camera wasn’t focusing fast enough. So I changed to One Shot focusing mode, put the camera on high speed mode, focused on where her eyes would be, and then as soon as she started lifitng her hat I just kept the shutter speed pressed so I could get a good shot!

It worked pretty well, I think! Although she is not smiling in this shot, I like the expression on her face…it is…real.

Hope that helps with your photos!
