The creation of captivating photographs of children depends on more than technique. It requires the willingness to relate to children on their level and help them to open to the camera. Learn how to photograph and effectively communicate with children.
Areas covered include choice of equipment and format, camera use for portraiture, and methods of candid image making. The workshop focuses on natural light, the choice of environment and settings, and capturing the decisive moment that reveals the child’s inner life. This is done through demonstrations, lectures, and hands-on exercises photographing child models.
Prerequisites: A working knowledge of photography. Please bring your camera and a digital capture card or enough film to make 40–50 exposures.
