Escape from the Wedding

Escape from the Wedding

Come to the edge
We might fall.
Come to the edge.
It’s too high!
COME TO THE EDGE!
And they came
And he pushed
And they flew.

Think like a child.

Act like a child.

Be childlike.

 

 

 

 

All good photography requires patience, and photographing children requires a special kind of patience. Sometimes I prefer the head shot, sparkling eyes – or teary ones – looking right at the camera. But sometimes a silhouette conveys the mood better.

The key is spontaneity. Your and theirs! Take lots and lots of pics, but try to avoid randomly clicking. When you see the shot that feels right, take it many times from many angles. One of those clicks may be the special photo you’ll be glad you spent your time, energy and patience on. There is something truly inspirational in sharing in a child’s joy, and sharing a child’s joy!
