With awkward mood, taking pictures of the people I loved, the photos made me feel bad.
My baby is so cute, how can I look at the photos of my baby?
The little guy’s expression is so rich, why is there no in the photo?
After I had a baby, I bought a professional SLR, but the photography technology did not improve, and I was always dismissed by my wife.
I have imported Ding at home, and I have to take photos with my arms and sleeves. What do you want to shoot in such a chaotic scene?
It’s so pious when I take pictures of my baby, but the photos are terrible! What can I do? !
Nothing can stop the old mother who is eager to learn. The glittering childhood of the baby, all the photos that I want to delete when I grow up, how can this be? !
Ordinary parents take the party, do not emphasize the photographic equipment and shooting parameters, just use the equipment at hand, learn the following tricks, you can make the photo of the baby quickly upgrade a file.
When you take a photo of a baby, you may wish to change a few shooting angles.
The children are truly 360 degrees without dead ends, and each angle can produce "big movies." A qualified parent who shoots a party needs to open his ideas for multi-angle shooting. Mom and Dad can try to stand, slap, slap, lie, slap, slap...

1, the angle of view
From the top down, the child's head is small and small, suitable for capturing the exaggerated expression of the child, and has a dramatic effect. This is the most common shooting angle for moms and dads. "Girl, look up, my mother will take a picture of you."

Overshooting will highlight the child's smallness. If you want to make a difference, you can consider raising the position as much as possible, such as using a selfie stick, standing on a chair, standing on the stairs, etc., to incorporate more environments.

2, the angle of view
Half-squatting can bring you closer, and it also creates a sense of intimacy. It is easier to observe what is happening around the child.

3, the angle of view
Upward shooting will make your child taller and create a contrast that is different from reality, making the picture more vivid. This kind of perspective is best for shooting children's cheering moments, or participating in outdoor sports, expansion and so on.

Take two steps when taking a photo. If you are farther away from your child, you can try it.
1, from the far-point shot, people small Jingda, can better express the relationship between children and the environment. Big world, little he/she can't help but want to hold him/her in his arms.
(Photographer: Pea Her name is Zhang Xiaoying, 3 years old when shooting. Focal length: 50mm Aperture: f/4 Shutter speed: 1/80s Sensitivity: ISO250)
2, nearer, closer, partial close-up, the best for our little angels. Close-up shooting can be a lot of shots, not only his/her small face, small tender hands, beep mouth, sausage arms, small elephant legs... are the most inspiring shots of mom and dad.
(Photographer: Dark blue peas, she is called Peas, when shooting 4 years and 8 months. Baby is asleep, the most soft focus of the parents can touch: 35mm Aperture: f / 1.8 Shutter speed: 1 / 40s Sensitivity: ISO100)
(Don't throw it, raise it. Focus: 35mm Aperture: f/1.4 Shutter speed: 1/200s Sensitivity: ISO140)
(Struggling with his feet, he is so cute. Photographer: Jane E, focal length: 50mm Aperture: f/2.2 Shutter speed: 1/800s Sensitivity: ISO1250)
When there are many people and the environment is chaotic, this trick is very practical, and it can be adjusted far and near to adjust the picture effect. In a word: go further when chaos, and take a step back.

Grab the fleeting morning and dusk, use light and shadow
In the morning or evening (magic time), during the process of the sun rising and falling, the angle of light and the color temperature have changed a lot. It is easy to take a photo with great light. The easiest way to remember two things:
1, indoors, the best is to shoot the child in front of the window, let the child in the sun a little side of the side of the angle of illumination, the sun will be widely spilled on the baby itself is very white skin skin, crystal clear, warm.
(Photographer: Blues hacker. She is called lemon. She was 3 years old when she was shooting. She likes to ride in the bay window to see the passing cars on the road. Focus: 35mm Aperture: f/1.4 Shutter speed: 1/160s Sensitivity: ISO100)
2, outdoor, seaside, grassland, high mountains is the best location, the background is clean, the scene is bright in the golden sun, if there are clouds, it will increase the layering of the picture.

To the left, to the right, make the photo look more comfortable with the simplest composition
Composition is to organize the content to be photographed to form a complete picture. There are probably dozens of ways to compose a picture. Remember one: whether it is close-up, half-length, or whole body, let the child turn to the left or a little to the right in the picture. This is the "golden oil" of the composition of the baby.
Simple composition methods are also:
1. Tripartite composition: Tripartite composition is a composition method that is often used and most effective in photography. Tripartite composition refers to dividing the picture horizontally/vertically into three parts, and each center can be placed in the main body. .
2, horizontal composition: horizontal composition will give people an extended feeling, the general situation is to use a large horizontal frame, in this group of photos, used to highlight quiet, focused and immersed in her world.
3. Symmetrical composition: It has the characteristics of balance and stability.
4, slash, diagonal composition: performance of movement, dynamic, lively, expressing the relationship between things and subjects.
The photos that tell stories are the most touching
If you look carefully, those photos that touch us are all stories, and even after 20 years, they will make us feel. The story behind the photo is coming, it is likely to make you tears, this is your great shooting.
So in addition to posing, let us learn to use the lens to capture the moments and stories of growth. The moments that make the babies happy, excited, expecting, sad, and disappointing are the best time to shoot.
The small reminder, the moment when the children touch people, is often the emotional expression, always so heart-lending, you can use the borrowing to shoot, introduce the object of emotional expression, and make the story more complete.

He will not wear socks, but the speed of taking off the socks is super fast, he will kneel down when he turns his head, and each time he is good and funny to help him put his back on his feet.

It’s not that easy to take pictures of the baby. The expression on the face in June, the little figure ran up and slid. The father and mother also learned to be a documentary filmmaker, prejudged + wait for + more shots, and seized the wonderful moment.
This baby on your apex, you know him/her best, waiting for a cake, seeing a puppy, getting a new toy, brushing your teeth for the first time, and being separated from your mother... Find a certain distance and angle and wait for the story to happen quietly. Next, like the masters of photography, hey, continuous shooting, there must be one that touches you the most.

Brother, is it delicious?

Do not forget to do these small settings to make photos better.
Taking Apple and Huawei mobile phones as an example, in the function setting of the camera, setting and adjusting several key contents is beneficial to us to guide the composition position during shooting, to make the photos more delicate and sharp, to improve the exposure, etc. .
Format resolution: Please adjust to the maximum, the scenery shooting can set the screen to 16:9, and the rest of the time to maintain a ratio of 4:3, which is conducive to the maximum pixel retention of the photo.
Network reference line: You can set the 9-square grid or other options (golden ratio) as needed, and place the subject at four intersections or near the intersection and line when shooting the composition.
Photo mute: Please turn on the mute camera function, with the exposure of the “click” photo sound, there is a possibility of lag, which leads to the blurring of the focus caused by some hands.
Flash: It is not recommended to put the flash in the automatic gear. It is recommended to turn off this function.
If your child doesn't want to take pictures, don't be reluctant, photography is just a small part of life. Take your time, think about it, maybe let the kids like to take pictures.
A. Encourage and praise them when taking pictures. Even if a child's expression or movement is not good, don't blame them. If you don't change one, you won't have it.
B. Compared with the first time to shoot a friend circle, the better choice is to share and appreciate with the children. Maybe the children will find it very interesting to take pictures.
C, the child is "beautiful" when the most beautiful, we can pick up the phone to approach them to shoot, but do not disturb them.
D. If you are a “playing” parent, you can be an excellent exclusive child photographer. Use the usual game to shoot and use the film as a game.

Undoubtedly, Mom and Dad are the best photographers for children. Every moment of the child, the small details of growth, only parents can be keenly captured. A photo is the past years of growing up with the child. Mom and Dad are not just photos, they are a good family time.
Abandoning the long story in the systematic photography tutorial, the secret example of the secret can make the public parents better understand how to use the image to retain those beautiful and difficult to reproduce moments in the process of growing up together with the family. The lens is a small matter of passing photos, and photography is a process of feeling happy life with each other.
