Last Saturday, we attended a photography workshop by Bob Lee and Canon and he shared some tricks to capturing great photos of kids. It was a humourous session filled with beautiful, heartwarming pictures of his family and it made me want to take better photos of my kids.
These are some points Bob covered:
A – Angle
B – Bokeh
C – Continuous mode
D – Distance/ Detail
E – Exposure
It really set me thinking about the type of photos I usually take and how I can try to improve them. He mentioned something about how the photo should make people want to know more about it. I think my photos tend to be quite straightforward, predictable and matter-of-fact, nothing much to know more about!
After his sharing, I tried to take some photos of the kids. Adam was making a mosaic picture and Anya was baking. I think I still need lots of practise to break out of my usual photo-taking habits. Thank you, Canon for organising the session!
