I love to take photos. It's a true statement as I love to record life through the lens. As part of this recording of life I like to record my own children growing up, having adventures and enjoying the places we visit.
When photographing landscape, it's easy as it does not move around, pull faces and all those interesting things that people do. Children especially enjoy making faces in front of the camera.
Photographing little Mr has more challenges though. With not so little Miss I I can ask her to pose for a photo, stand there, smile and so on. Little Mr doesn't really understand when asking him to do similar things.
So, I have come up with 5 tips I use when trying to get a photo of little Mr. It's possible that these may also come in handy for anyone else who finds it challenging to photograph their ASD diagnosed child.
Here are the 5 tips I use when taking a photo of little Mr.
Personally, I find natural looking photos are the best. I try not to get little Mr to pose, instead
I'm always looking for that perfect photo and not a force one. Children can get annoyed if forced to pose for too long a time and you will never get that perfect photo that way. Instead, try to get them enjoying something and you will find that perfect pose just comes.
As an image is worth a thousand words, here is an example of what I mean. I was ready to take the shot and got something I think is special.
One more final example. While I had my camera ready I got this shot of little Mr just watching the world by.
I hope these tips help you get that photo you want. Just always be prepared and ready to capture they image at an instants notice and you will get some wonderful photos to share with your family and Facebook...
