Tips for Taking Photos of Kids

Baby photo Picplum

The holidays are coming and it’s time to take some festive photos of your favorite kids, nephews, nieces, cousins and loved ones.  Our good friends at Photojojo posted some great tips for how to take great pictures of your kids. Take a look and let us know what you think! 

In particular we like the author’s suggestion of printing out and even framing the best shots to share with loved ones. Aside from those suggestions for how to compose a great shot, having a camera that deals well in low-light (a lens with a larger aperture, or small “f-number”) will help you get the best shots of little ones that won’t stay still. Likewise, if you’re on the hunt for a new camera this holiday season pay close attention to ones that have image stabilization built-in.
